FSRM and Users Shares

DaBoags asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Hi all,

on a SBS2008 box, the content of the users shares (\\server\users\) can only be viewed by its owner, and not even the domain admin.  That's by design and that's fine by me.  However, if I want to generate a report using FSRM to see for instance who has MP3 and AVI in their "My Documents" I get only a blank page in the XML report...

How do I bypass this ? At this stage I only want to generate a report to see how much space is used with audio and video files, depending on the result I'll enforce a filter or not...  If I can't open the user's shares, how can I have data in my report ?

Thanks for the input.
