    dirquota quota add /path:d:\folder\folder /limit:5000mb


    dirquota quota add /? gives you syntax

    OK This is weird. Using FSRM it says the students have 5GB. But when I right click on the drive, and look at the quota settings there, it says they have only 1GB.

    Are these 2 separate settings? Do I require both, or has one been carried over from a previous setup?

    Drive quotas as in the properties of the drive? thats different from FSRM quotas I am sure, you use one or the other but not both.
    Btw I would use the /template "template name" rather then direct filespace quotas to setup alerts etc.

    FSRM is all set up with templates etc and its set up as I want it to be, with seniors having 5GB

    But in reality, they only have 1GB. Yes, drive quotas as in the properties of the drive. I will try removing that and seeing if it fixes up the problem. Cheers
