Gals/Guys, good morning. If anyone could point me in the right direction.

I have a FILE server serving 200 users with their GROUP and PERSONAL file areas. This server periodically runs low on space. We currently run Treesize once the server starts runing out of space.

We find in one week 10Gb can disappear and we would like to pinpoint where and validate if the nature of the file is work related and not: mpg, mp3, exe etc.

It would be difficult for us to consider disk quotas as users share numerous areas on the disk. Can anyone recommend a reporting tool that could pinpoint easily the additional files added in a period of time?

Thanks in advance.
