  • network share

    Is it possible to set a size quota on a specific shared folder rather than just a quota per user or per drive? Through my googling and books I've only seen the aforementioned. I want a large shared folder to store pictures on that our art department can use, but it wouldn't make sense for me to bump up their quotas.

    Shared folder limit......yes, but you need SBS 2003 R2 version. (or possibly some third party software)

      I do have R2. Where can I find this option?

        Dont know if it comes with SBS 2003 R2 (I assume it does) but in Windows Server 2003 R2 there is an addon product called File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) which can quota individual folders).

        Great tool. Worth a look.

          2003 r2 server folder quota

          [edit] Link fixed. Thanks for picking up on that Chris.

          Also, this only works on Folders (SHARES) and NOT on users or OUs.

              FSRM was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks! I've got it up and running.

                It's pretty slick isn't it. Just wish it could be applied to OUs at least.

                Thanks for posting back that you got it sorted. We appreciate that!!

                  It is very slick. I set a 60GB hard limit on the folder. Now my problem is that users are still limited by their own personal quotas. That doesn't make sense to me. Is there a way around that?

                    What personal quotas?

                      I'm looking in quota entries for a specific drive, and it seems to default all users to 1GB. My test user is at 99% full. I didn't want that shared folder that I set the 60GB to apply toward the users quota. I hope I'm making sense.

                        Beware
                        SBS still leaves a user quota of 1GB by default on the drive - you must disable the volume quota to leave the FSRM quota as the only quota manager
