    Thats nothing, Ive come across quite a few with 100MB word files! Just full of pictures they've pasted straight from a digital camera
    Not a lot I can do about them though as they normally appear to be coursework...grrr

    as much as they want but we're gonna have to deal with media files synchronised from laptops cos the staff are using about 130gb atm
    my boss in his wisdom decided to spread the userareas across 3 servers and not on separate partitions so quotaing things will cause problems with other non-userarea shares. doh!

    Upgrade to Server 2003 R2 as soon as possible ... there is more fine tuning for quotas and file control ... worth the upgrade costs alone.

    We don't use quotas. A certain third-party told the school (before I got there) that they were bad, bad, bad. Mmmmmm. Then you look at all the trash they put in their areas and you wonder.

    I think Tony is right though- upgrading to Server 2003 R2 gives much better control over quota allocation and file management than the previous incarnation.
