    Re: disk quota

    This is possible.

    2003 R2 allows quota to be used on folders and sub folders.

    The alternative is a Quota Softwre solution

      Re: disk quota

      You need to install File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) from Add remove programs > windows components.

      Then you need to create a quota template stating only 5mb can be used. Make it a 'hard quota' to enforce the 5mb limit.

      Now you create a quota on your home drive directory (at the root). Select auto apply template so that it filters down to your individual users folders. Pick your 5mb template and then click create.

      After a minute refresh the display to see the limits at work.

      Hope this helps

        Glad you had the answer I found this interesting too. Now we have Volume Lic and they send a huge pack with everything in, I'll get the chance to try 2003 R2 server for myself
