Windows 7 Thread, Student Directory Restrictions in Technical; Hi,
I am just setting up restrictions on student directories and was wondering what the maximum space you have given ...

Depends what they are going to be storing, at the college as standard profiles we use 50MB but the students who do alot of design work and photoshop stuff we give them 1GB and if they run out then we up it to 2GB.
Usually students that don't do alot of design and just use the machines for word processing we give them 50MB it seems to be more than enough, all the tutors get 1GB.

See I am struggling abit as I have some students with 200MB of files in their area. This is a primary school and feel there is no need for them to have this much data.
I have teachers with 10GB of data and because there has been no restrictions before I came they have just saved and saved. I don't know how I am going to get teachers down, I have asked them to clear up space but this has made no difference :S

I had a real headache with this. The main reason for such high file sizes was uncompressed .bmp files generated from paint when the kids were bored and images in powerpoint, again not compressed. Once I had deleted/compressed these I gave a quota for each year based on the following:
Year 7 35Mb
Year 8 40Mb
Year 9 50Mb
Year 10 75Mb
Year 11 110Mb
These seem small however with win 7 most file sizes are fairly small and paint no longer saves in .bmp by default. Occasionally I need to increase these limits for graphics students and I always need to increase if they are doing graphics and ict but it keeps the server space at a relative constant.
Currently no limit for staff however I am looking to implement something if we go with a moodle vle as most of their docs can be stored there as course content.

Wow, you guys make me feel better. I've got 1.25GB of space per student then two seperate areas for those doing Art (about 300GB in total) for them to save just their arty work.

IIRC it's 1.2GB for KS3,KS4 and 2GB for KS5

Your all lucky, I have many staff with over 15GB of stuff ina home drive, though I will be sorting this out.
Our students also abuse the home drives to much because fo poor IT staff in the past not setting rules. This is now being fixed.
