In order to reach the point where you can work towards this achievement, you will have become quite proficient in Breach Mode. So, this guide is not going to dwell on the basics of reading maps and clearing servers. There are many different viable approaches. I have outlined my strategies in guides for the Data Disciple, Expert, & Master achievements. Moreover, I have an in-depth video guide for the Data Detective achievement that illustrates the tactics and strategies that I used throughout Breach including Breach Mode for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

In order to unlock the Santeau Darknet File (the fourth Darknet file), you must first complete the third Darknet File. The Prime Unit in the final third Darknet File has Titan armor. Though not invincible, if activated, it prolongs the battle and there is a very short time limit. I cloaked immediately to avoid detection and stunned him with the stun rifle before he activated his armor. While stunned, he quickly succumbed to an A Class 10 mm pistol with standard rounds. I had to stun him a couple more times between pistol volleys to keep him incapacitated. This is not the only way to defeat him, naturally, but my weapons of choice throughout Breach Mode were stun rifle and 10 mm pistol with standard and EMP ammo.

It helps to work on or complete the below achievement before the Santeau Darknet file. The expansion items you get by doing so level your avatar up by an order of magnitude. The six expansion items I got for the achievement increase my avatar's HP by plus 450 HP and plus 150 energy. This permanent (so long as the expansion items are in your loadout) increase to energy and HP make it a lot easier to get all achievements for this DLC. WhiterValkyrie has a good guide that helped me figure out how to get the achievement:

The principles you have employed to get to the fourth Darknet file will enable you to clear them. One of the files, DF1_CAISSON, has an extreme HP static burn when you are standing still so your approach should be to stay constantly on the move. You can get most of the fragments by avoiding enemies. Where you are exposed, cloak and focus will help you get by. All the Santeau Darknet feature an abyss so, once you meet the conditions to clear the server, you can jump into the abyss to respawn at the exit point. The achievement unlocks following the customary Picus newscast at the end of the file. The Darknet servers in this file are as follows:


Edited to add: There have been a couple of comments about clearing DF5_CLAYMORE in the third Darknet file. Below is a video solution of how to clear it. I get a little distracted making these videos (I'm still not very good at making them) and am embarrassed to point out that I missed one of the 10 fragments on the top floor. The fragment is in plain sight and easy to pick up. Although I miss it, there are more fragments than the 22 required to clear the server so the server objective was still met):

Although DF5_CLAYMORE is not in the Santeau Darknet file, it must be cleared as one of the steps to clear the third Darknet file that must be completed in order to unlock the Santeau Darknet file. I have provided some additional information on how to clear DF5_CLAYMORE in the below comments.
