    Minecraft limiting storage

    We currently have Minecraft blocked by Impero but I'm increasingly thinking it's a useful learning tool for our Emotionally Disturbed Boys. The trouble has been in the past it's been allowed but a few lads went OTT with it and were playing it at every opportunity. A few building up over 12GB of Minecraft files in their home folders.

    What would be the best way to go forward with this?

    Create ad group.
    Create group in impero that uses the ad group membership, that allows mine craft.

    Scheduled task to add/remove people from the ad group, so they can't run it when removed, times of the schedule to prevent them from playing all day...

    Deny save files in user areas with file resource manager , issue 4gb memory stick for save files. No reason to be backing up files on network.

    You maybe able to get the memory sticks purchased under pupil premium if sort of students playing
