Hi All.

I have a specific user who gets an error saving to the SBS 2003 server. The error reports that there is no either no disk space or the use has no permissions to save to the server.
The user gets this on has XP machine and when he logs on to any other machine. The server has loads of free space and the user also has the same Group permissions as all other users (full R/W permissions to the folders). I temporary solved the problem by creating a new user account and assigning this to the user. This worked fine for less than a week. Now with the user has the same problem again. it is creating a real difficulty for the user.

Any thoughts, there are no event log errors that are pointing to the issue so I am trouble shooting blind.

SBS 2003 uses disk quotas in Users Shared Folders.
Have you checked whether the user has reached his disk quota limit?
