  • How could we give files and folder qouta in windows 2000 advance server

    Hi,

    Some body help me to tell how could I give file and folder qouta in windows 2000 advance server. Inbuilt qouta services in windows 2000 server only give volume qouta. There is any good third party software which can help me to do so.

    Regards,

    You are right, the build in Quota in Windows 200 is a disk quota and not a file/folder one.

    I did not come across a good third party software, but a google search will help in that.

    I used to do a small trick around it, which is allowing disk quota per user account and divide my files on the user accounts. This is really tedious way of doing things.

    Update us if you were able to find a third party tool.

      The "third party tool" is called Windows Server 2003 R2. Any reason you can't upgrade. AIUI the directory quotas as well as the other enhancements will mean a smaller TCO rather than buying one utility third party.
      TIA

          Hi,

          I know about this that Windows 2003 R2 has this feature. If I go for update my recent windows 2000 advance server 100 user licence to windows 2003 R2 is very costly. That's why I'm looking for third party tool for this.
