  • Windows File Server - Version Control

    Good day everyone. We have been trying to find a software that we could load on our Windows file server to allow us to control access, versioning, searchable, etc. Similar to box.com but installed on-premise. Do to the sensitive nature of the data we hold, we cannot use cloud-based services like box.com

    Any ideas on a product that would serve our needs?

      We explored SharePoint Foundation about a year ago but couldn't figure out how to make it work. It seemed very complex. I say SharePoint Foundation because we are a non-profit and don't have a ton of money to spend for these needs.

        SharePoint ticks all the boxes for you (versioning, search, permissions) and as you say, it is free.
        There are plenty of training materials available, so a small budget for books/videos plus time to study may be worth while. A few days of consultancy would be even better, but cost would rise

          Sharepoint handles versioning thru metadata attached to each document. We've been trying to set that sort of thing up for a year, along with other requirements mandating 3rd-party software on top. While it is a lot to get your head around, it can be done.
