Re: out of paper!

With 100 PCs, you'd hope they'd be be sending their jobs to a print server, not individually straight to the device.

You can use the GUI or NET PRINT commands to target a specific queue (naturally your print server will generally be used for multiple printers), or stopping/restarting the spooler (after a pause) is normally sufficient to clear the whole server without having to delete SPL/SHD files (some might be left hanging around if they were corrupt).
