Workstations report incorrect drive size on network

Windows 2003 server network. Older hubs from patch panel. Server has been in for about 5 mos. Clients are a mix of XP pro, 2000 and 98. Server reports 160GB drive with 12GB free. ALL workstations report 1GB drive size (mapped network drives) and varied free space. I plugged my laptop into the SAME hub they are connected into and it reports the correct drive size and remaining free space.

What could be causing this?

It does sound like you've got user quotas enabled on the server.

You can check this as follows:
Log into the server with Admin rights
Right click on the drive that contains this share
Choose properties
Choose "Quota" tab

Is "Enable quota management" ticked?

Hi mstumpo,

Seems very odd to me.

I think we need to establish that everything is looking at the same data.
What is the exact UNC path that you're looking at from the workstations?
Is that identical to the UNC path that you're using from the laptop?

Where does that share actually exist?  Is it on the same drive, or a different partition?

Do you have any quota management set up?

Yeah, sounds like quota management to me....

AAfter logging into the network with the administrator account on a problem station, it reports the correct sizes?
