The non-profit I work for has recently purchased a 42TB NAS unit. This unit will store media production files: .jpg, .mp4, .pst, .indd, etc.
I'd like to be able to specify a set of rules for a folder & its sub-folders. For example, each project that is archived on the NAS should have the same folder structure:
Department_JobDescription - Photos - Videos - RAW HD
If a folder put on the drive doesn't meet that criteria, I would like to be notified. In addition, if the
Photos folder contains something other than .jpg's, I would like to be notified.
While this may seem like overkill at this stage, 5 years from now, the well organized server will be dripping with awesomeness.
So, how could I set this up?
The NAS is powered by Windows Storage Server 2008. I'm a programmer and capable of writing such software. Since I'm the only programmer at the organization, time is tight. I thought I'd ask the community if something existed that would satisfy the requirements before I wrote it myself.
