Something similar to FSRM from R2, without having R2
Posted on 2010-09-08
I am looking to implement the folder quota management. Also i would REALLLY like to block certain files from the server (usual suspects - .exe, music, pictures).
My previous employer had an 2003 R2 server, and i really enjoyed the simple yet full of features FSRM.
now i want to (need) to do the same thing on SBS2K3 server that doesnt have R2 installed. Also, it has at least 2 years of life in it, so getting a new server with new OS with all those features that i need is not an option at the moment.
anyone has any suggestions???
i can enable basic "Quota management" on the drive and limit the size of hte home drives, but
i have no clue yet how to block users from saving pictures and music to their home drives.
i either need a pointer to the GPO that can do something like it (i couldnt find it),
or a 3rd party program/utility that would be cheap and effective. by cheap i mean it has to be cheap enough to stop my from considering buying R2
