Hello,

In my company, we got about 15 departments. Each department has its own folder hierarchy using mapped drives letters. Due to the deep folder nesting and sometimes the inaccuracies of each department's folder hierarchy, i need a way to manage these folders in a manageable way. For example, i need a software solution that can draw me a big picture of the folders hierarchies so i can keep myself up to date with any change happens in these hierarchies. Also, if possible, i need this solution to audit, backup and restore Folder's security (ACL) to keep track on any malicious intent regarding changing and manipulating the ACL.

And please don't tell me to use the object access auditing in windows since it generates a large amount of unneeded alerts. If possible, i need also this solution to be client/server model that provides me centralization so all auditing alerts be centralized in a single server.

Appreciate your help and your quick response.

Thanks

Hello,
I suggest a workable workaround:
Create a new folder  hierarchy and associated security groups. Then leave to owners to move their own data.
