For a moment I thought I'd missed the wood for the trees to sort our folders out then I remembered... not only do we have single shares but the My Documents folder is redirected onto the root share (as opposed to a folder under it e.g. %username%\My Documents)

I'd get this for any new users...
\\share\%username%\Desktop (also redirected)
Which then would break the existing ones... need to either move everyone onto a neater structure or some tricksy scripting to sort out the current folders

\\server\share\userdir - anything else just gets silly.
And "My Documents" is pointed to \\server\share\userdir\Documents
16 mapped drives? Crikey, we're gonna need a bigger alphabet.

Im about to give up and ditch FSRM quota limits and put the quota limit back on the drive as before Need Plextor !!!
Cant find a GP to show quota instead of drive space...
Started over from scratch.....
Created a brand new home for test user: share H:\test\test_user, gave everyone full control permissions on all shares and folders, then set the quota to 100mb
Again it appears at 1tb in the drive properties but DOES apply the quota....
H:\Test_Staff <- works
H:\staff_drives\test_staff <- doesnt work
My only thought is that ive just noticed it is running Windows UDS Server 2003 SP2 and not R2...

Most of the staff have about 6 at the most!

This method creates the home folder fine for each user, but creates nothing in the profile folder location. Any quick way to setup profiles?

File Server Resource Manager (with server 2003 R2) does not correctly display the "home drive" Quota but instead shows the whole drive quota, unless each home directory is shared and the quota applied that share.

IIRC correctly it's a long standing bug. Last time I looked (pre win 2008) there was plenty lacking in windows file sharing; no file Veto, no auto create folders when students log in, no auto email quota, no soft quota, no remove nt acl support.
