    PSDs

    At my last school we had users with rather a lot of PSD files (Graphics Dept).

    We liquidated anything that looked iffy. Clawed back nearly 10GB - nobody came crying so it must have all been rubbish.

    Perhaps move your year 11 data off the drive once exams are done.

    when we get short of space I just quietly move something large like photo collections that I have been told are vital...I don't delete them just archive them off to some offline storage (ie my hard drive) and wait to see who squeals.

    Last time I did that nobody said anything...ever!

    Shows how vital all those photos were

    I did exactly the same thing with all the 'important' Art photos - no one has ever said anything

    We ended last year with a few mb of space left on both the staff and student file stores, thus year I am not worried about those thankfully as my shiny Sun SAN solved those issues for us this year.....

    iDisk or Treesize are awesome applications for finding where the space has all gone - it could be that a quick conversation with a couple of users could recover you enormous amounts of space. Also consider things like BMP2JPG, Image Resizer (use with caution) and compressing a few embedded images in Office files - you might surprise yourself with how much you can get back with minimal impact on users and only a few hours of your time.
