    Report Students with *.mp3 *.avi *.ogg

    Hi, Can someone please point me to a script / software which I can use to report Students who continue to store *.mp3 *.avi *.ogg in their home drives and My Documents?

    I have just done a search and there are GB's of *.mp3 *.avi *.oggs

    I am looking for a script that I can run / print and simply hand the output to management. (hopefully categorized by user/student)

    - best Roland

    Now that would be nice.

    I have never managed to find anything that complex. so I get my laddo to trawl the filestore and find the files.

    This summer I have reduced the 68Gb of student filestore to 39Gb by just removing Any non course related Music, Video and Pictures from all year groups.

    Haven't got a script that does it, but I do use something called "Agent Ransack" to search both staff and student areas for MP3s etc. It finds them by username and you can take screenshots etc. I believe the software is free. Been using it for nearly two years with great effect!

    Edit: Duh! Are you using Server 2003 R2? Because if you are you can run reports using FRSM. And you can screen those files too.

    What I do is run a file screen on .EXE files that users have in their home areas. I will have to run one myself on music files too just to see if it works like it says on the tin.

    Good old DOS can sort this one - just cd to the top level directory which the student home folders are in and use dir /S *.mp3 > report.txt

    Yeah - though I just run a del instead and capture the output to a file - 2 things sorted for the price of one!

    With courses like DiDA I've found that this approach can be a little BOFH. When it's blatantly just the latest Akon or other such sh**e then it gets deleted but I think judgment calls are becoming more frequent with all types of multimedia files on the network.

    Re: Report Students with *.mp3 *.avi *.ogg

    We generate reports on what look like the bad guys - it then takes human intervention to decide if they really are bad :-)

    Details at http://techinfo.cnwl.ac.uk/Windows%2...20Contents.htm

    If you're running Server 2003 R2 then you can block certain file types. As far as I can tell, you can't apply this to a particular group but you can exempt particular folders (so you block MP3 for all folders under d:\home but allow MP3 in d:\home\<user on DIDA course> - some details at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserv...e/default.mspx

    Im sure you can just scan over the folders for any file type, and it will just report it and then you can take action from then.
