Generating site reports
Site reports in Microsoft Expression Web enable you to gather, analyze, and summarize site statistics in a variety of ways. In the reports, you can filter the data and display only the information that is relevant to you.
Two different classes of reports are available. Summary reports, available from the Reports tab of the Site View panel, provide quick overviews of various aspects of your site.
To return to the Site Summary display from a summary report view, click the name of the report under the Site View tab and select Site Summary from the menu.
Comprehensive reports, available from the Tools menu, scan through the files in your site and provide detailed diagnostic data in a report panel that is displayed below the editing window.

Site Summary report
The Site Summary report provides you with a quick overview of the statistics available about your site. The Site Summary report provides a lot of useful numbers, such as the number and size of all the files in your site. This allows you to quickly see how much space your site is taking on the server. In the Site Summary report, you can click on the links under the Name column to go to other summary reports.
All other site reports are divided into three categories: Files, Shared Content and Problems.
You can use the Application Options to set report options. See Change site reports settings.
All Files Every file in your site, which is useful when you're looking for a file but can't remember which folder you saved it in.
Recently Added Files Files that were added to your site in the past 30 days. You can change the number of days that defines "recent". For more information, see Change site reports settings.
Recently Changed Files Files that were changed within the past 30 days. You can change the number of days that defines "recent". For more information, see Change site reports settings.
Older Files Files that haven't been changed in the past 72 days. You can change the number of days that defines "older". For more information, see Change site reports settings.
