No. Disk quotas are "per user" (actually, "per owner"), not "per folder" or "per disk". That means you can say "This user is allowed to store a maximum of x MB on this disk", but you can't say "This folder may not grow to more than x MB".

Please note the "you *can't* say" in front of "This folder may not grow to more than x MB". You can only limit a *user's* documents on a disk to a certain size.

As oBdA said, you can only set quotas per volume, not per folder but there is a simple workaround:
Set the user quota on the voplume and the set Write permision for that user only on the specific folder or folders. Should work.

You can use third party quota tools like Quota Manager or Quota Server ( http://www.quotaserver.it/en/default.htm ). I used Quota Server from Northern Software in a VERY large enterprise envirnment with much success.
