Disk Quota Software
Has anyone found a good solution for disk quota'ing?
We currently use Spaceguard from PNL Tools but have found a problem with it: It always allows a user to finish saving the current file. If this happens to be a 500MB video file, then it results in them being well over their limit.
Suggestions of a better solution would be welcomed.

We just use the disk quotas built into Server 2003 and store all home folders on a partition with limits set.

It does work on ownership, yes. Setting the owner of the files while moving them isn't a big deal though, it's an easy habit to get into.

I use the folder based quotas in Server 2003 R2

We use FSRM in Server 2003 R2 as well and it works very well.

windows 2000 server should allow you to do it aswell.

But only per volume. Per-folder support isn't available unless you have 2003R2.

IIRC you need to install of activate the File Server Resource Manager feature.

I updated all our servers to R2 last summer and it was very easy. The FSRM tool works like a charm too.
