If you enable this policy, disk quota limits are enforced.
If you disable this policy, disk quota limits are not enforced.
When you enable or disable the policy, the system disables the Deny disk space to users exceeding quota limit option on the Quota tab so administrators cannot change the setting while a policy is in effect.
If the policy is not configured, the disk quota limit is not enforced by default, but administrators change the setting.
Enforcement is optional. When users reach an enforced disk quota limit, the system responds as though the physical space on the volume were exhausted. When users reach an unenforced limit, their status in the Quota Entries window changes, but they can continue to write to the volume as long as physical space is available.
This policy overrides user settings that enable or disable quota enforcement on their volumes.
This policy is effective only when disk quota management is enabled on the volume. Also, if disk quotas are not enforced, users can exceed the quota limit you set. When users reach the quota limit, their status in the Quota Entries window changes, but users can continue to write to the volume.
Default quota limit and warning level
This policy applies to all new users as soon as they write to the volume. It does not affect disk quota limits for current users or affect customized limits and warning levels set for particular users (on the Quota tab in Volume Properties).
