    Papercut is free they just heavily advertise the paid version. Download link is about half the way down the page

    The paid version does yes - the free version literally gives you a list of all the pages printed and not a lot else.

    I don't think any free software will allow you to set print quotas

    Not for windows I'm afraid, but Pykota, combined with CUPS will do print quotas for free - but the setup is complicated, and it works on Linux. PyKota's Home — PyKota's Home
