Use Data Navigation to manually find data in the folders of a company network or in the SystemLink file service. After you retrieve the data, you can inspect, upload, download your data, add custom properties or export the files for further analyses to Data Analysis.

The following table highlights tasks in Data Navigation to meet common querying goals.
