Organisation of shared public folders
We have two main shared folder areas:
R:\ (resources) which staff can edit and pupils can read
U:\ (staff area) which only staff can access edit etc.
Both areas have had little or no housekeeping done on them for years.
We are looking at what strategy we can employ to force some tidying/deleting/re-structuring.
Wondered if anyone had gone through similar pain and what lessons you learnt.
I was thinking of creating a new file structure especially in the R:\ area that at the top level was just subject names, below that teachers initials and not allow any other folder creation by staff. This at least would give some accountability to the area.
Wondering also how best to move from the "mess" to a new structure...if we allow staff to just bulk move files/folders over...then little or no pruning will be done...but I don't want to be lumbered with hand-holding myself...
Can any software report to us the owners of files in the R:\ drive and we then bulk move those files to each new staff folder?
Comments/thoughts much appreciated.
