How can we ban music sharing and external hard drives?
Posted on 2006-11-07
our company is having a big problem with music and software sharing, we can ban file shares but users are bringing in music and other illegal material on usb pens and external hard drives, we dont want to ban usb devices as staff need them frequently for work, but is there a way to specify a certain hard drive limitaion?
we have viewed peoples hard disks and they all have the same albums and cracked software, but disciplining them is a real grey area as we shouldn't spy on them.
we have written a script to delete .mp3/.wma ect but this interferes with windows system files and installed software. we know about treesize for our server drives, but local drives are a big problem for us. its mainly a local drive issue, is there any software out there or good pre-written scripts?
