Disc Police, Version 1.2 Introduction ------------------------------------- Welcome to Disc Police. This program is designed to manage shared disc space, typically on a network file server. It finds "disc hogs" - users who consume too much space on the shared disc. It does this by allowing you to establish a list of shared disc users, each with a certain space allotment. These users are the owners of their space and are responsible for staying within their assigned space limits. Disc Police checks the disc against the list, finding users who are in violation so that action can be taken. Disc Police is designed to resolve the disc space problem that is so common to DOS networks. That is, no matter how large your network file server is, unless its space is managed and regularly cleaned up, it won't take long until all the space is consumed. Disc Police makes that disc management easy. Disc Police is a program written for use with Microsoft Windows. It is very easy to use and requires no documentation other than Help messages (provided in the program). The only operator effort required is to set up the list of users. Once this is done, Disc Police does the rest just by pressing a button. Disc Police, Version 1.2 is designed to be used with Microsoft Windows Version 3.0. In addition to Windows 3.0 support, several program enhancements have been made in this release. Registration ------------ Disc Police is a shareware program. This keeps its cost low and allows you to run the program before you decide to buy it. The introductory version of the program has every feature, but limits the number of "Slices", or disc divisions, to 10. This is normally sufficient for software evaluation purposes. To remove the 10 slice restriction, requires program registration. Two levels of registration are available: The Standard version of Disc Police software costs $79. This version supports all program features: Unlimited number of slices. Multiple Slice data files. Slice entry and editing. Slice listing report. Slice status report. Crumbs report. Slice monitoring. Printer support and online help. Free future updates. The Limited version of Disc Police software costs $49. This version supports most program features, with some limitations: Unlimited number of slices. * Only a single Slice data file. Slice entry and editing. Slice listing report. Slice status report. Crumbs report. * No slice monitoring. Printer support and online help. Free future updates. To register, please indicate which version you are registering for and send a check or money order to: Douglas E. Phillips 12909 79th Place NE Kirkland, WA 98034 (206) 821-3531 Copying Restrictions -------------------- Disc Police introductory version of the software may be freely copied and provided to others as long as two conditions are met: 1) This introductory file is copied with the software, and 2) Registration codes are not provided with the copy. Installation ------------ 1. Start Microsoft Windows (if it is not already running). Disc Police is designed for Windows Version 3.0, but it will run on Windows Version 2.x as well. 2. Create a directory for the Disc Police program and data files: Use File Manager, File menu item, Create Directory Create a new directory... C:\POLICE Note that any other directory name is acceptable. 3. Copy all files from the Disc Police program disc: Put Disc Police program disc in A: drive Use File Manager, Switch to A: drive icon Highlight all file names Select File Copy menu item Copy to C:\POLICE (or whatever directory you created) 4. Change your WIN.INI file. This file resides in your MS Windows directory (normally C:\WIN3). You can use the Windows Notepad program (in Accessories) to make the changes. Add the following lines at the bottom of WIN.INI: [DISCPOLICE] DataPath=C:\POLICE\ (or whatever directory you created) Code=XXXXXXXXX (your registration code or blank) SliceLimit=XXX (any number you wish, normally 100) Make sure to include the full data path, including the last \. If you have not registered yet, leave Code and SliceLimit blank. You will be limited to 10 slices. When you register, use your registration code and enter any slice limit you wish. Keep in mind that each slice will take 542 bytes of memory. So a SliceLimit of 100 will consume about 54K memory.
