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...

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! :)

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.
