There are so many ways to do this job.....it depends on what is needed.  Also this is a 500 point questioon.
But  lets get started with at least identify a method.

1)  What controls the requirement for files to be found? Is this something that could run at night or is this an on-demand thing.

2) What type of files are they?

3) How frequently will computers be added to or leave the network?

4) Are all computers on the same subnet?
