The problem with cron jobs is that it allow users to save and the shared 
will be cleaned until the cron run.... so, my special users sometimes 
save large videos or mp3 files that take a lot of space on the file 
server disk. I mean, its ok to clean, but I am looking for a way to 
denied saving media files (mp3, mov, avi, etc) in the server.
