Informing users they are over their quota? (2003 R2)
Just been setting up quotas for the students on R2 using the FSRM.
All works well, except I cant think of a good way to inform them to delete some files if they go over the threshold.
Obviously the message about the disk being full and them needing to delete some files when you try and save anything else gives a good clue but Ive got the feeling a lot of students will see that as 'The network isnt letting me save' rather than 'I need to delete some files' and will lead to loads of complaints
The email facility built into FSRM is no good as we dont have an Exchange server and I doubt they would noticed the emails anyway
What I need is a little pop up or something saying they have exeeded the quota by xxmb and could they delete some files or see the IT Team.
I seem to remember with the NTFS quotas there was a way to have a baloon pop up to tell users they had exceeded the quota but I assume that doesnt apply to these new folder quotas?
