Scripting Question

Listing contents of Dropbox

10/03/2019 248 views

We have a number of users that use Dropbox, but we don't have a business account for that.  We would like to scan and compare the hash's of the files that are in their dropbox to their network to see if our files are actually in their dropbox.  Anyway, I'm fairly new to Kace and I feel like i could use it to help with that, but I'm not sure what the best way of going about it would be.  I feel like I could create a Powershell script to get all users and loop through them to get the contents of the dropbox folder if found, but I'm not sure about how to get the hash.  Within Kace would you create a report? Or a Kscript? Or a... Has anyone used it for something like this in the past?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions that could get me started here.

  • KACE doesn't do hash\md5 automatically.

    You will need a Script to hash (all?) the files... I mean that doesn't seem like a good a idea CPU\Time wise.... I mean a DROPBOX folder can be huge... and to MD5\hash every single file... then pull the results... and compare each one of those files against.... another MD5 table?

    Might be possible , but.... it sounds like a lot of work, HUMAN wise and CPU wise.
