Report Locations are provided for three types of reports:

1. Incident Report: This type of Report is generated when the user tries to exceed the Quota or tries to save an unauthorized file. As it's name suggests it is not generated on a regular basis, it is only generated when a specified event has occurred.

2. Scheduled Report: This type of report is generated periodically based on the scheduled Report Task. This type of report is generated on a regular basis.

3. On Demand Report: It can happen that you may want to generate reports on demand to analyze various aspects of current Disk Usage. This type of report is generated manually when it's demanded.

Here you need to click on the Browse button to define the location for storage of these reports.
