Always out of disk space? Sick of spending hours looking for disk hogs? Looking for the user who has copied 2 cds worth of games to their home directory?

If you're like most administrators, you spend much of your time trying to manage disk space. UserSpace is designed to help.

UserSpace is designed to quickly scan users home directories and reports on the amount of space used in each one. The location of the home directory is looked up in the NDS, and it will attach to the relevant server if necessary. The administrator can select any part of the NDS tree and UserSpace will report all the users from that point down.

UserSpace has been tested with NetWare 4.1x, NetWare 4.2, and NetWare 5.x, but not NDS 8. The only known limitation is NSS volumes. These volumes do not support, at the moment, disk restrictions, or disk summary reporting.
