Windows Thread, Disk quotas in Technical; ...
20th June 2012, 11:16 AM #1
I've recently been trying to organise disk quotas via FSRM, ploughing through all the old Edugeek threads on the subject, and it sounds like a PITA, especially if you want notification with Windows XP clients. I can't be doing with this Samba nonsense, so I wrote off for a quote for a piece of software called Northern Technologies Quota Server which I used to use - it was a few hundred quid and worked really well.
They've just written back to explain that I would "only require the entry licence" @ £16,600+VAT, annual support costs £2772+VAT.
Isn't there a simple, affordable solution to this?

I'm not sure what you mean about FSRM? It takes hardly any time at all to set up? What's the issue you have with it?

(...I wrote to them as well, haven't heard back yet - they seem to be about the only other game in town, though I take the lack of prices on the website as a bad sign.)
