rd8t Posted February 28, 2012 Share Posted February 28, 2012 If you work in any computer repair shop, help desk, desktop support, systems administration, networking, etc, then you have a horror story. Anybody want to share? Mine was during the time I spent working with the Systems Engineer at a casino, where part of my job was MS Exchange administrator. While in the planning stages of upgrading the hardware and version of Exchange (from 2000 to 2003) we were running into the issue of inadequate drive space. After researching the issue, we found that the majority of users did not empty their "Deleted Items" folder, so we changed settings to empty when users closed outlook. The following week we discovered that over 70% of end users store important messages and documents that want saved in the DELETED ITEMS folder, including executives. Our presentation a few weeks later involved me taking a "confidential" file, and puttin it in a physical waste basic, and asking the room if this was a safe place to store important papers....NO, then why would you do it in your email?
