ZDNet Asia: Who is draining your file server storage space?

September 29th, 2006 by Jabez Gan [MVP]

My article posted in ZDNet Asia :

Have you ever noticed that your file server storage space has quickly run out after upgrading the file server storage device?

Your management might say: “Our employees are doing a great job! They are doing loads more work!” But have you ever wondered what is actually stored in the server? Are they all work related files?

While working on a freelance basis for IT departments in many small companies, I have found, on browsing the file server, that computer users store non-work related files like MP3 or video files.

Although I don’t personally mind that computer users store these files temporarily for the occasional viewing, it is not acceptable when each employee stories his or her own collection of music, jokes or videos without deleting them from time to time.

System administrators can save time spent monitoring the file types that users have by using the File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) which is a feature in Windows Server 2003 R2.
