    I think you can use GoogleDocs to create a form and have the results emailed to somebody:

    If you have Joomla chromoforms is good.

    If you can run CGI (Perl) or PHP scripts then there are loads of free Formmail scripts (or similar) here:

    The CGI Resource Index

    or

    If you use volume shadow copies why not allow users access to these then they can restore their own stuff?

    That's what I was just about to say. Really easy to set up too.

    Can you expand on this for me Ben? If I enable shadow copy on the server, how to the pupils then get their older/deleted versions back.

    Is it an easy thing to do?

    You might also want to think about some sort of authentication so that you're not restoring work needlessly. If you can do an ASP page then you could probably grab the users AD name and make it so that can't be changed. That way you know that the request is coming from the right person.

    Symantec BackupExec does another add-in to this. So they can even restore from tape if need be.

    Far as Shadow copy, just right-click, then there is an extra tab, restore from previous versions. Needs software installing on the client (I believe).

    Shadow copy rocks saves me so much time. Here are some instructions, really easy once you know how:
    Restoring a File with Shadow Copy
    How to Use the Shadow Copy Client

    I know this is a dull thing to say - but I love learning new stuff - even though I have known about it for ages.

    I've just never bothered to look at it.

    Now I am.

    Go on - everyone can now laugh at me.

    How much space does Shadow Copy take up? How much space do I need on my servers?

    Or can I get shadow copy to put the older files on a NAS box?

    This is before I start reading - lol

    You can store the shadow copies on a different drive but it must be local so unless your NAS offers iSCSI conectivity that is probably out.

    As for space you can define how much it is allowd to use, shadowcopy works with snapshots that happen at scheduled times. It depends on how much data is changed during the period as to how much space you need, also how far you want to go back as with lots of space you can have snapshots going back weeks. You can easily clear out space by using the server side tools to delete all but the most current snapshot and lower the amount of space that shadowcopy is allowed to use in the configuration.

    Learning is a good thing, I don't think that anyone here would laugh at you for it.
