Hi This was the sort of topic that used to be dealt with on the old, now apparently defunct, uk.education.schools-it, which those of us old enough to, will affectionately remember. (Perhaps school network managers have gone elsewhere now?) Is anyone out there running Microsoft DFS (Distributed Filing System) on their school network - or can anyone make a case for a) running it b) not running it? Is it the solution to most server problems? etc or is a RAID system good enough to deal with HDD dying etc.
