Thanks I'll take a look at it, however we have few large binary files
in the repository there are simply a LOT of binary image files. Also
I'm not sure if we need a full fledged DAM solution, I floated that
idea earlier in my search process and the bosses weren't very keen on
retraining the image processing staff on a new way of interfacing (The
whole directory structure of the repository is currently simply shared
to the network using Samba) with the images. I need(ed) a solution
that would be transparent to users, but still protect the data from
their mistakes.
