Disk Quotas and Permissions Issues - Windows 2000 Server

I created a partition with "Disk Quotas" and "personally "moved" user home directories from one partition to the new partition with quotas.  After moving the shares myself I've found that some folks do not show up in the Disk Quota Log.  Is there a way to re-set permissions back to the specific users so they are reflected under the quotas.  Any assistance would be very much apprecitted.  Thank you.

Quotas are not enforced by permissions, they're enforced by ownership.  Check the files that belong to the users in question, they probably aren't owned by that user.  Give the users the ability to take ownership of files in thier home directories, then have them take ownership of their files.  After that, quotas will be enforced.

Is there a way for me as the admin to establish ownership to the specific users?  If I can do that without having to visit users it would be great.  Thanks for the previous response.
