Each member of staff has a personal network drive that only they can access. At the moment these drive are not size limited, as a result some users store vast amounts of data on their personal drives. Because we have 5000+ personal drive it is difficult to audit them and there are concerns that staff are storing personnel information on these drives rather than using the central HR system. To combat this we have proposed a 2 gig size limit on these drives.

Does anyone else use personal drives?
If so are there any restrictions on the size of them in your organisation?
If you have unlimited personal drives how do you audit them?

Any thoughts or insights are much appreciated

Many thanks,

Jamie Bradbury
