I've a problem with Files being locked the network and server are several years old and this has only just started to happen.

The file shows as "File Locked by network user", I've Win 10 Pro clients with 2008 R1 file server, the file is not shown as being locked on the server.  This particular .DOCX file was used by one user who has restarted but the lock remains.

Is there a tool to better show file locks other than Comp Man\Shared Folders\Open Files?

Thanks in advance.

Unable to access FTP server using local account created.  Ftp server is 2003 and not using IIS, but OpenSSH.
User seems to have all the permissions needed to access through WinSCP, but I keep getting the access denied message when attempting to connect.
I'm not sure whether or not I did not add this user somewhere with permissions, whereas I am not an avid FTP server administrator.
Any help would be appreciated.

I am currently in a trial with Citrix Sharefile... but find the pricing a bit too much for our company at the moment..   Love the features .. Large File send.. Encryption .. all integrated into Outlook.   In my email signature I have a link for people that need to send me files... etc..etc..     Does anyone know of any other companies that offer this type of service that might not be as expensive?

Cheers

Hello Experts,

At our business, we use both Adobe Acrobat DC and Adobe Creative Cloud (CC).  Due to the nature of the work, we would like to permit the CC users to continue to save and  share work to the Adobe Cloud.  We would like to block saving and sharing to the Adobe Cloud for the Acrobat DC users because we want them to use MS OneDrive.

We can do this if we purchase the higher priced licensing but we are trying to avoid that.
The firewall is not an option because if off-site users do not log in using the VPN, the firewall rules are bypassed.

Any suggestions or recommendations?

Thank you,
Steph M

Dear expert

I would like to know how FTP works with file modification time.

When you get something from ftp the windows is showing the file is created by yesterday, not today when you received, I mean when you write something to the disk, OS should write the create time is today right? But it doesn't why is that?

Regards

I am looking for an FTP program that can download files, send files, then copy those files to local folders, delete files from local folders and then send an email notification out to users that the file has arrived etc..
I want all this to be triggered with one double click, after configuration.

I would like to modify this portion of an FTP script so that it does try to look at the LOCAL folder to compare files with the REMOTE folder - and then try to delete those files on the REMOTE FOLDER.
I simply want the script to download the files found in the REMOTE folder to the LOCAL folder, Delete the files in the Remote folder - but not to delete anything in the LOCAL folder..


:GetFTPFiles
    (echo open %ftpserver%
    echo user %username% %password%
    echo bin
    echo cd %remotedir%
    echo lcd "%localdir%"
    echo mget *.*
    echo quit
    ) | ftp -n -i
    exit /b

:ClearfTPFiles
    (echo open %ftpserver%
    echo user %username% %password%
    echo cd %remotedir%
    (for /f "tokens=*" %%a in ('dir /b /a-d "%localdir%\*.*"') do @echo dele "%%~a")
    echo quit
    ) | ftp -n -i -d

Someone asked me if he can setup three computers in his home to share a OneDrive for Business drive.  I'm not sure if this is possible and if so how to set this up.

We are looking for an alternative to SharePoint Foundation 2010 which is coming to end of life.
There is the possibility to move to Foundation 2013 (still free), but this also has only a few years of life left.

There are a confusing amount of possible alternatives out there and before I start sifting through them I thought I would ask the Experts what they thought.
We are happy to have either a cloud based or on premise solution and although what we have now is free we would be prepared to pay a little for something that has wow appeal.

We are a construction company and use SharePoint as a document store, photo gallery and very basic workflow (question/answer lists) for each of the 5 - 10 projects we are working on. What we like most is it is storage with meta data (who posted, who modified, when and various custom columns we have created) much more useful than just storing in folders as we did in the past. More document management than collaboration.

Our Intranet (only AD users are ever likely to to use it) needs are:

1. Storage for Word, Excel, PDF files with meta data we can add (Who, When, Where, Custom Columns etc), and batch upload/download.
2. Very simple Workflow. An uploaded or emailed document sits there until it has been actioned, after which it becomes easily identifiable as complete.
3. Photo Gallery - Single or multiple uploads, Albums, Thumbnail views, Auto Date stamping, Indexing.
4. Custom permissions on each site and within each site for …

This course will introduce you to the interfaces and features of Microsoft Office 2010 Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Access. You will learn about the features that are shared between all products in the Office suite, as well as the new features that are product specific.

Can someone help me with best ways to setup departmental file share for our organization.  Should we use a 3rd party tool, or used built-in functionality from Windows and/or Office 365.  We do have Office 365, and both Linux and Windows Servers available.  I'd like to hear everyone's ideas.

Thanks.

Hello Experts

I have attached file that I'm unable to read as I don't what application is used to open the file, or the format of the file.

Can someone let me know how to determine the file type so that I can open it?

What is best practice or what have you used that hasn't failed?
  • Creating a hidden share from file server for all group policy images, icons, apps etc.
  • Creating a folder in netlogon for items mentioned along with logon scripts etc.

*desktop wallpaper images, icons for websites, gp applications, etc.

I have read a few forums where techs would share from their DC and sysvol. I feel it be convenient to share straight from File Server as hidden share and utilizing NTFS permissions, of course via security groups.

if can get me some ideas or best practice.
Thx

I have about 200 members that are participating in a video contest. I want for them to give me their videos the easiest way possible. I  thought about using Dropbox. During testing, I send them a Dropbox link; when they tried to "drop" me a file, they are asked to create a Dropbox account. That idea did not go over well.

Any suggestions or comments are welcome!
Cheers!

Due to a mess up in mapping, a user in my domain was working for few days on his backup homefolder instead of his "live" homefolder.
So now I have 2 folders for that users with some file newer than other but in both ways...
How can I re-merge them and get a folder that has all his newest version of each file ?
PS: He has many sub-folders and his homefolder is around 20Gb.

Thank you.

I have rsync some files to a remote server.  Some of those files have been updated on the remote server and others of those files have been updated on the original server.  

I want to update the remote server so that it includes any changes to updated files on the original server but I don't want to overwrite anything on the remote server that has more recently been changed on the remote server than the original server.

Which rsync option should I use for this?

Hi,

I've been using Dropbox for years, the 1 TB account and I think it's great.  I have some clients that use Google Drive and they think it's great--until lately.  One of the users deleted a bunch of random files in many different folders.  Being familiar with Dropbox, I was thinking that it was going to be simple to restore these deleted files from the trash.  I would just go in there (past the meatloaf from last week, egg shells, etc) and sort the trash folder by date deleted or date modified and restore the data back to its original location. Apparently, it's not that simple.  The trash is all mixed together.  It has a "last modified" and "last opened" column option but there is no chronological sorting when those options are selected.  Please say that I'm missing something here.  I googled, "google drive restore by date deleted files" in hopes to find someone else that had this issue.  I found an old Google productforums page and the conclusion by the Google Drive tech was, "Thank you for posting and sorry you're running into this issue. The only way for you to restore files on specific days is to do it manually."  So, no sorting in the trash?  You must restore the whole thing and then sort through it?  I checked out Dropbox again and I see that you can sort the deleted files by date/time deleted.  Please let me know if you have some experience with this or if Google Drive is not a good option.  Thank you!

Hello EE,

We are migrating our file server and need to maintain shares and permissions.  The first I am looking at doing a full copy to see how long it takes with retaining all time stamps, permissions and shares:

robocopy "\\server\share" \\server\share /zb /MT /mir /copyall /dcopy:T /V /tee /LOG+:C:\robocopy\log.txt /r:3 /w:240

It's been a while since I've used this so want to make sure if I am missing anything.
I would then like to migrate only changes, but am not clear how to edit the above.  Any input would be great.
