    First, I'd upgrade to R2. It has much better Quota support.

    How many volumes have you setup with quotas?

    What type of RAID? Raid 0, 1 or 5? Software or hardware?

    It might happen with Raid 1 as you're mirroring (theoretically).

    I wouldn't have thought so, windows just see's it as one volume.

    As Geoff said if you have the licenses to upgrade to R2 go for it.

    I agree it's highly unlikely, but I can't think what else it could be. Although R2 may introduce some benefits I doubt it will resolve this particular problem.

    looking at the files contained in the 2 quota entries it looks like some are from before we mirgated to our new domain.

    no idea how to fix other than delete all the older files though!

    Sounds like the file ownership is a bit screwey, you could try taking ownership of the files as an administrator and then give back ownership for the files to the original users. This should clean up the ownership entries and hopefully sort the quota problems as the file ownership is how it is tracked.
