Things not to keep on your school file server #4

Any combination of non-school files that total around 14GB.

If a student uploads 14GB in a day (a bunch of ripped DVDs and personal photos, for example),  I’ll notice first thing the next morning after the nightly audit.

Bond, on the other hand, will notice almost immediately when he gets an email from the storage server because it has just tipped over to the ‘warning’ level on free space.

He will then call me and relay his anger, shortly after which he will accidentally disable the student’s account.

An hour long video of hardcore pornography.

This is an extremely stupid thing for a student to keep under their account on the school file server. This is the sort of thing that, when I go to talk to management, causes them to exclaim that the student is “a knobhead”. This is the sort of thing that leads to a student’s parents having to come in to discuss why the student is being suspended.

A downloaded recording of the Disney Channel TV movie Camp Rock.

This is a stupid thing for a student to keep under their account on the school file server. Bonus points for being a 16-year old heterosexual male and being into girly films.

An 800MB collection of the first season of Thundercats.

This is a stupid thing for a student to keep under their account on the school file server. It will not only be deleted, but will also elicit from me a note to your form tutor to be read out in front of the form about what exactly we removed from your account.
