    Re: Quota Doesn't Work

    What "preparation" steps did you take? Posting one liners like that is not going to get you much help unless you provide more information of what you have done.

      Remember two steps:
      Enable quotas on the volume (and set default actions)
      Configure user quotas

        Thanks for your responding
        I already enable quota on the volume and set the users quota in the quota entries and I was selected on ( deny disk space to users exceeding quota limit) but it doesn't work
        in more details
        the scenario. that I own a domain server and I use this server as a backup server to all users in my company and I made share folder for all users in drive (D) for example one folder to Mohamed and another folder to Ahmed and so on. and I want to set quota to all of those users and do not exceeding their quota.
        Thanks for your patient.

          Try creating a test account, enabling quotas and copying files into it to see if event log messages are being generated.

          You want to post screenshots of your settings so we can see if anythings wrong?

              Would you be so kind as to tell us what the problem was and what solution you found. That way someone else encountering the same problem can solve it much quicker

              Thanks

                Remember in Server 2003 R2 has two different sets of quotas. One is the Volume quota and it sets the total amount a user is allowed to store on a particular volume. This is installed by default.
                The second is configured after installing the FSRM from the additional Windows components and allows a per directory quota.
                IMO you should only use one OR the other to avoid conflicts.
                TIA

                  I found that I didn't mark on the log event when user exceeds their quota limit.
                  And marked on log event when user exceeds their warning level.
                  And mark on limit disk space to 1 GB, set warning level to 1GB
                  also I marked on enable quota management and deny disk space to users exceeding quota limit
                  that is all what I did.

                    May you explain how to install (FSRM) ?
