    Disk Quota Management for Schools

    Hi,

    I am looking for any disk quota management solution for schools.

    I have found the following:

    • Spaceguard SRM
    • WinQuota

    Are these suitable and if not then can you recommend any others?

    Thanks

    After a recommendation on Edugeek I had a look at FSRM [File Server Resources Manager] I found that it was already installed and configured on our system. All I had to do was confirm the quotas I wanted to apply to the student users. It works very well and I haven't looked back.

    Another +1 for FSRM. You can easily apply the quotas and File Restrictions to all students if all users are in one folder, or do seperate year-by-year quotas if you seperate them into seperate year group folders. Also works with Windows 7's My Computer icons to give remaining free space.

    I'd say go for what's built into Windows initially.
    EDIT: is this specifically for an MIS problem, otherwise you'll get a better response in another forum.

    had to drop using Disk Quota Management kids where making files way to big 129 mb .ppt and .wmv from movie maker the ICT cord just never listens about compressing images and video.
    so i have a script to compress all images over 1Mb and re encode video to MP4 saving over 200GB of storage.
    looking to get a MS office file minimizer software but the there like over £3600+ tested one once 280mb ppt down to 1.76mb 98.7% compression not bad hay!

    Any chance of a quick gander at the script?? Definitely looking for something like this to auto convert videos.. Does it run over-night or something like that??

    Here you go..

    @ ECHO OFF
    REM The following will convert all avi files in the current folder into mp4 files.

    IF EXIST *.avi FOR %%A IN (*.avi) DO CALL :twopass "%%A"

    :twopass
    ffmpeg.exe -y -i %* -b 2M -bt 4M -vcodec libx264 -pass 1 -vpre "C:\Users\ffmpeg\ffpresets\libx264-fastfirstpass.ffpreset" output.mp4
    ffmpeg.exe -y -i %* -b 2M -bt 4M -vcodec libx264 -pass 2 -vpre "C:\Users\ffmpeg\ffpresets\libx264-hq.ffpreset" output.mp4
    RENAME output.mp4 %*-.mp4
    ECHO.
