    WSS is the answer to your needs. It will allow document storage in a relatively similar fashion to windows explorer.

    If you want to have a look you can go to the sharepoint section of the M$ site (honestly can't be bother to search for the exact URL atm) you can set up a trial site to play with.

    The collaboration works better with Sharepoint Portal where you can 'sign out' documents ...

    Is there an improvement in check in/out in SPS over WSS? I thought functionality of that feature was the same. :?:

    WSS vs SPS I believe the major benefits of SPS are My Site, Audiences, SSO and better navigation OOTB.

    Isn't it the audiences bit linked to meeting spaces that is the big change in collaboration?

    So does WSS work as well outside Office2003?

    Great - thanks meastaugh1

    I meant to ask as well about other apps - Acrobat was mentioned for example?

    Can't quite remember, but I think if you click the link to the PDF, I think it will either launch the PDF in IE, or in Acrobat Reader (probably depends whether you've set PDF in browser in the Reader).

    If you're using an SQL server, as opposed to WMSDE, then you need to install the IFilter for PDFs, or any other file types you want to include in the full text searching.

    Just a quick low-tech idea: You could make a batch file that uses the cacls command to add the administrator etc... to your folders. Schedule this to run before your backup task using the NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM account.

    Re: Non-tech staff setting share permissions

    Nice idea but it needs to have a way of taking ownership first as you can't change ACLs otherwise.

    Re: Non-tech staff setting share permissions

    You could write a script which automatically puts Administrator and System access back onto every file/folder in a particular path and run it every night before backup.

    EDIT: Sorry, I just no saw that eean already suggested that. I would recommend SETACL rather than CACLS/XCACLS however.

    Re: Non-tech staff setting share permissions

    Another thing to watch out for is if you do differential or incremental backups.

    The act of re-setting permissions causes archive attribute to be set (i.e. files have been modified since last full/incrmental backup).

    This could mean the size of the backup would be larger than normal.
