    Running out of space on your storage server?

    Have found the easiest way to reduce files is to resize pictures in powerpoints, its annoying how people assume we have loads of space here, we have firefighted for ages but I can see if we do increase to a TB then all we will end up with is loads of more stuff not needed.

    What is this magic invisible method?

    I usually just use the "Compress Images" button on the powerpoint and adjust.

    Give everyone quotas - limits to be reviewed every year... then write some tips on regaining space (e.g. compressing images in Powerpoint/Word, image resize/compression, housekeeping etc...) to give to the whiners. Also, create file storage policy e.g. work files only
