File Server Resource Manager not saving.

Today I was getting a strange error from the file server Resource manager when I was trying to save a quota, but upon the save I was getting the following error:

“The Quota Management Filter Driver Service or File Screening Filter Driver service is not running”

Simple fix is:

open a command line

start > run > type  ‘cmd’

then type
‘fltmc filters’  – (this command will check which filters are activated)

you should see 4 items if you only see 2 then you are missing a few things:

If Quota is missing type the following at the command prompt.

‘fltmc load Quota ‘

If Datascrn is missing type the following at the command prompt.
fltmc load Datascrn

Now you should be able to access the File Screen in the File Screening Management, and save your quotas etc.
