This is my own version of a Dilbert story. For Narration I'm using PHM to refer to Pointy-Haired Manager :)
When the primary file server at my Fortune 50 company ran out of file space and crashed, hamstringing some 6,000 employees, the Novell engineering team was called to the Director of IT’s office… the PHB. This was the first time “The Problem” occurred.
At a university law school there was a secretary that had managed to accumulate a file structure of 14,000 files in 9000 subdirectories. That woman can file!
It all started with "Bob, I need to see you in my office." Counsel decided that we needed to retain e-mail and user files for a potential litigation. So instead of implementing a system to, uh, "archive" mail and files it was decided to just take our backup tapes for each day, keep them. Buying new tapes as needed. Thereby solving the problem, once and for all.
