    It has reached my knowledge that the existing file server is not working optimally. There are reported troubles with file and printer sharing. Transferring of files usually bogs down and returns error messages to the sender.Printing large files paralyzes the server and ties up the server user.
    My recommendation would be to provide dedicated file server and to use a printer Server (example: Linksys PPSX1).
    The “file server” normally requires a big storage capacity plus big RAM (think 1GB+).
    If a dedicated server is not feasible, give the server to someone who has “non-critical” jobs (one who can be inconvenienced often).

    Maxtor Shared Storage cut file server costs by Php 40,000.
    that is from as high as Php 100k+!!!
