    Home Folder Data Calculator for end user

    Hi all,

    Wondering what people are using for end users to see how much space they have left before there quota hits 100% on the server. I know we can use Windows 2008 R2 FRSM and email notification but this isn't good enough. There must be a script or an app that the end user can run to see how much capacity they have used and is left.

    Thanks in advance.

    Do you allow your users to have access to (My) Computer? If their home drive is mounted to a letter, it shows them how much of their quota is in use. Their network drive says 200mb of 1gb in use or whatever.

    I hope this helps, Ed

    i wrote a little app in visual basic which displays the quota left on the desktop just above the clock, if your home drive is H i can attach a copy of it here.

    Thanks for the reply.

    The home drive path is Z: unfortunately.

    Also, the user doesn't have permission to view My Computer

    @victory2012 would it be an idea to allow a 'driveletter' variable at startup so that other drives could be shown if required?

    just a thought
