  • Folder Redirection Size Limits

    When implementing folder redirection in my server 2003 standard environment via group policy, do I need to be concerned with the size of users My Documents folders? Obviously there are disk size limitations. How do I control the size of the users My Documents?
    But, also, are there limitations to the size in general when it comes to the whole offline folder access and synching. I mean does it matter if a user has 100MB or 10GB when it comes to these things?

    Disk Quotas. Search Google for Windows Disk Quotas and find something that works for you.
    Cheers,

      Hi,

      Firstly, my doc's are just that - my docs's. Use Disc Quota's to limit the amount of *stuff * people store.

      As for the amount of data stored, that depends on the network - the last place i worked in specified 10MB (!).

        I think you'll find that with just about any organisation the world over, if you store documents on a company file server, they are COMPANY documents, regardless of the content. If you have PRIVATE documents which you wish to process on company IT equipment, then store them on other storage. I have absolutely no problem whatever with "the company" limiting the amount of storage used by its users, no matter what it's being used for.

          Most certainly it does. If you have 1,000 users, 100MB per user is well manageable. 1,000 users times 10GB each is a different story.

          Are you using 2003 Server R2? It has additional quota management that you may find useful.

          2 2 was 1 2.
          1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
          2 2 1 1 2
