Hello, we are running win 2000 server and we have a few folders assigned to a few user. Each user should have only 5MB of maximum usage for their individual's folder. We are using the WarFTP server. Is there anyway to control the user disk usage? Any 3rd party software to control this? Coz currently I do not find any windows tools that will control disk usage based on user's account.

Thanks...

In explorer rightclick on a drive and choose properties. You'll see a Quota tab (if your drive is NTFS). Here you can enable quota management. You can set a default quota for new users and by clicking "Quota Entries..." you can assign quotas for individual users.
The only problem is, quota management is on a per disk basis. So, if a user has access to more than one share/directory, it is applied to all direcories. With W2k you only can control the amount of diskspace a user uses per volume, if you want to control per directory, you need a third party tool.

You can use either of the following, both of which provide quota management on a per-user-per-directory basis:
