I think you can use GoogleDocs to create a form and have the results emailed to somebody:
Creating forms - Google Docs Help
Does anyone know of somthing that I can put on our webiste to allow students to fill in a form which then emails the ict support with the details from the form. Say for restoreing work?
If you have Joomla chromoforms is good.
If you use volume shadow copies why not allow users access to these then they can restore their own stuff?
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.
We just map a drive to yesterday's data with read access only
Symantec BackupExec does another add-in to this. So they can even restore from tape if need be.If you use volume shadow copies why not allow users access to these then they can restore their own stuff?
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).

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
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.Originally Posted by garethedmondson
