    No, but you can tell it where 'du' is and speed things up massively.

    Re: Moodle

    How? Also Geoff is it possible to stop pupils being able to delete files in the files section in courses or anywhere else for that matter? Using Mount Points, Samba and Symbolic Links I've cobbled together our shared area into moodle as it's main repository, I'm getting someone to write a better method into moodle however it means that because moodle has full access so to do the pupils?

    Re: Moodle

    How?
    On my 1.7 install it's under Admin -> Server -> Path to du. Which I have set to '/usr/bin/du' which is correct for Ubuntu.

    Also Geoff is it possible to stop pupils being able to delete files in the files section in courses or anywhere else for that matter?
    in moodle? configuring the roles should be sufficent.

    Re: Moodle

    I'll stick it on our 1.8 test server and see what happens.

    We've looked at Elgg for doing E-Portfolios in the past.
