How can I set a limit on a users file sizes

I need to be able to set a restriction on the maximum file size a user can save onto our Windows 2000 Server File Shares. This limitation would need to be set on a per user basis.

e.g. User FRED can only save files onto the server where they are less than 100MB

Anyone know of any way to do this?

Are you talking about Quotas?  You could set a Quota on a per person basis that would effectively limit the total disk space they could use on a given voume?  I have never heard of anyone doing a per file quota like you are talking about.  There may be a software package out there, but presumably it could be circumvented.

To do the Quotas per person as I described, right click on the drive in question and select the Quota tab, enable the Quotas and then set up a generic quota.  Then you can select Quota Entries and tweak each individual entry.

You can't do on specific folders/files, only disk volumes as WilyGuy said.
