    Quotas on a individual folder in users home directory?

    Is it possible to set quotas up on a individual folder in each users home area on the network?

    I am running R2 on the file server as well. Just need to monitor the size content of a folder similar to what has been mentioned to monitoring mp3 file usage/size in other posts?

    I think so. Check:

    http://technet2.microsoft.com/window....mspx?mfr=true

    which says: "Create quotas to limit the space allowed for a volume or folder ..."

    Re: Quotas on a individual folder in users home directory?

    I know you can change the quota on an individual folder but if i read your post right, you want a quota on a folder inside the user area. Not entirely sure how this would work as its likely that you can have a different quota on the folder (which may conflict with the parent folder) but how you do this on mass im not sure. Can quota templates be applied by script?

    How about softlinks. If this is a standard subfolder then softlink it from another volume where you can have a seperate quota from the main home dir quota.
