I posted a topic a while ago about this issue but the situation has changed and I've figured out a bit more so I figured a new topic would be in order.
I manage a filesharing server for a small company (~20 people) that was set up before I got here by someone who isn't super tech savvy. We needed more space so I purchased an 8TB hard drive for additional storage. When I moved files into the new hard drive, it appeared that they would randomly disappear and then reappear in the top level of the hard drive.
However, a few weeks ago I decided to leave the new HDD empty and I realized that it was automatically deleting anything on the hard drive and populating it with the shared folder. Since I was moving that same folder over, it seemed like it was moving the files around.
Now, I believe that there is some sort of script or program set up to back the shared folder up onto whatever hard drive it finds. Unfortunately, I disabled Windows Server Backup and this file migration is still happening. About once a week (every Thursday for what it's worth) it seems to update any new files, as several folders will have a new "modified" date. I've searched for any other program that could be used to do something like this and I'm not seeing anything. The only thing I can think of is some kind of script through PowerShell or something?
Can anyone think of something that would cause this to happen? I've tried everything and I'm at my wit's end. My work is getting pretty impatient at this point!
