File Sharing Software

File sharing is the practice of distributing or providing access to digital media, such as computer programs, multimedia (audio, images and video), documents or electronic books. Common methods of storage, transmission and dispersion include manual sharing utilizing removable media, centralized servers on computer networks, World Wide Web-based hyperlinked documents, distributed peer-to-peer networking (P2P) and cloud-based file syncing.

I would like to read what's in Clam AV's safebrowsing .cld
(that lists the blacklisted sites).

After following some suggestions online, extracted from
the cld file  the following (using dd & 7zip):

I have Domain Server 2016 Environment and all workstations are win-10 and some Macs. We have legacy file server 2003 that is quite BIG, we use it for backups and old file-storage. For now we have no option to transfer all files, to big and no budget. But now, some colleagues would like once in a while to access those old files, on the fly.

All Mac users can access those files, no problem.
All Win-10 workstations/laptops, they cannot access them.

Any options? Please.

I have tried this bellow, do not work.

There are 2 servers running Windows Server 2008R2.
One is on the domain and the other is stand alone and in a DMZ.
The domain server is configured to sync certain folders and files to the DMZ server.
The DMZ server is accessed by outside parties and any changes made to those folders/files are synced back to the domain server.

The issue is that if the same file is open on the domain server and on the DMZ server - both the file sync software and Windows have no way of detecting the same file is open on both of them.
What happens in this case is that a user on one server will inadvertently save over the work from a user on the other server.

Is there any software that can detect when a file is open on the other server and then lock its copy of the file until the file is closed on the other end?

Hi Experts,

We have a script that is downloading files from FTP server every 15 minutes.

I'm writing a function that will do the following.

Loop thru all files, process them, then delete them.

Part of the function is to see if file contains some data besides of just headers.
this is the code

Function CountOfRecords(sFolderPath As String, sFile As String) As Long
Dim fso
Dim folderPath
Dim file
Dim oFile
Dim fileContent
Dim arr
Dim cnt
Dim recCnt
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
'folderPath = "C:\FTP\5-18\31\" 'Change the folder path as required and remember to add a back slash in the end
        Set oFile = fso.OpenTextFile(sFolderPath & sFile)
        fileContent = oFile.ReadAll
        arr = Split(fileContent, vbCrLf)
        If UBound(arr) > 0 Then
            cnt = cnt + 1
            recCnt = recCnt + UBound(arr)
        End If
        oFile.Close
        Set oFile = Nothing
CountOfRecords = recCnt

End Function

Open in new window

However some times I get an error, permission denied.

guess when its still in middle the download process...

what is the solution?

Thanks on advance.

Using a tool like Teamviewer, can I safely let a programmer add code without risk of him/her downloading my document?

Or any other tool. The main thing is to all the time be certain the programmer can work on my document (Excel workbook) and add VBA code without any risk that he/she downloads the workbook. Could I even restrict viewing of certain pages, tabs and cells/cell areas of this workbook and perhaps let several different programmers work on different tabs of my Excel workbook? Although they might take a screencast of the tabs, but if I divide the task on several programmers and restrict viewing I would neutralize this risk also.

Hi Experts,
I have my Access backend database on the server and some times nobody is using it, I can go into design of each of the tables.
However the lock file does not get closed after closing all Access instances.
Is it safe to copy over the file to a different location, compact it and place it back in the original location?

Hi Experts,

I have the following script that

1- downloads from a FTP site all new files to a local folder
2- Copy all downloaded files to another local folder.

However I see that 2nd step is not working properly, it downloads/copies all files again to the 2nd folder, not only the new files.
Can someone help me fix that?

Hi Experts,

The script below connects to a FTP site and downloads all newest files to a local folder in my pc.

How can I change this script to include only files  either with wording "PAT" or "Sched"?
However if file name contains word "Full" it should not be included.

}

{

    $session.Open($sessionOptions)

    # Transfer files
    $remotePath = "H:\FTP\*"

Hi All,
Client #1
client has NAS with map drive & o365 Onedrive business.

I want to be mapped in the office and cloud(onedrive) on the go.
Set up cloudsyc(synology) with onedrive folder and it is working fine, but NO local fast sync

I mapped the synology shared folder to pc and sync the same shared folder with onedrive.
But when I did copy/paste to map drive then did not sync with onedrive
When I copy/paste to onedrive then synced OK, BUT wasofcourse musch smaller.

So when they want use in the office they will have very slow speed!

Any idea to set better and increase the local sync speed?

Client #2

Another client at the moment use dropbox with 20-25gb video files with local sync between pc’s
It is OK now,but eating our bandwidth with vmwault and they use a lot skype to communicate

I want to move them to NAS and cloudsync too .

Dropbox & cloudsyc-but ongoing cost VS Onedrive & cloudsyc NO cost as they have A3 O365 licenses

Thank you for advice in advance

Hi Experts,

I use Dropbox to Sync files between a number of coworkers PCs.

Yesterday I set up a new PC.

I thought it would be a good idea to copy the Dropbox folder from one of the other PCs to the new one.

That turned out to be a disaster.

After installing Dropbox on the new PC, the number of subfolders in the Dropbox folder doubled.
So I now have folders with names like:

D:\Dropbox\Dropbox\Travel (Selective Sync Conflict)

this folder has some of the files duplicated from this folder:

D:\Dropbox\Dropbox\Travel

My problem now is that I can delete this folder, D:\Dropbox\Dropbox\Travel (Selective Sync Conflict).

But minutes later it reappears, presumably because it is on one or more other PCs.

How can I delete the Selective Sync Conflict folders permanently?

Regards,
Leigh

Hi Experts,
I am looking for an Access file that was used about a month ago, however cant remember the name and since there were more recent files used, I cannot get to see them from under Access recent files list..
Is there any way I can get a list of all my Access files used in past month, along with date last opened?
Files can be either on the server or on local C drive.
Thanks in advance

Hi Experts,
We have setup a server farm technology where file is on the local server and users are accessing the file thru the farm.
https://www.techopedia.com/definition/4202/server-farm
Now we are experiencing FE file corruption very frequent, not sure if this started immediately after the farm setup but this is now whats happening, and lately it can happens a couple of times a day.
See attached error that users are getting.
As soon I connect to pc and open the file, it asks if want repair, and I say yes, and then everything is fine.
I told users they must close access prior to logging off the farm, and they say this is what they do.
Last night I had only one user on, fixed it and in the morning, still only that user was on and problem happen again..
What can be done?
Thanks in advance.

However, i am very new and no much experience to their enterprise infra system comprises of 10,000 employees and require me to gather a lot of pro & con to integrate the new phrase IDMS (V4) to (V5), PIM (remote), DGM (Inventory) within a short period.

Can the 1-to-1 live chart or the experts exchange can provide me the help to complete this project or only troubleshooting.

Hello Experts,

I have a DELL server that I am going to mirror a couple of hard drives. It needs to become a file server.

My question is, is there a NAS software I could install on it and make it NAS server?

Software like FreeNAS or OpenFile. I will like the software to be free or otherwise, I will use a Linux server like CentOS 7 or Ubuntu.

If that is the case configuring Samba will be enough? Recommendation needed, please.

Thank you!
