I work at the help desk. We have 3 Network Share folders that over 1000 people access. Does anyone know of any software that can monitor these network shares and notify me when they go down. Before you answer, read the rest of the details:
I don't have Network Admin rights as in changing permissions. We had a lockdown which basically took away ours and the technicians ability to change permissions and access particular folders. We can still access those three network folders though.
When the network folders are reported down, a user will usually call in. I'll ping it which it still gives a reply. But when trying to access it via Windows Explorer. Explorer will just hang. I can't install the software on the server end, so the software must be able to operate on the user end.
