Let me clarify further, that I am not asking about the liability issues (copyright and so on), but just the management of file server space.

I'm looking for information at the enterprise level (mid to large corporations or govt agencies).

Any system administrators out there who are dealing with large amounts of space taken up with employees' personal (non-work-related) files?

Anyone aware of any published information on this topic?

Thanks!

We have issues with that, but we give the users a certain amount of disk space on the server (disk quota) and if they go over, oh well, we tell them to clean up there files or they can not save to the disk anymore.

space for each employee = amount of space available / number of employees

We give each employee at least 500MB and for the graphics employees we give them 1GB and that is all.  And if they choose to store personal files on the server then they are out of luck if their space runs out.
