When a specific user logs onto the server the main network share is showing as 0B free

If anyone else logs on from this PC they see there is 43GB free. When the user who is shown 0B tries to save files they are told there is no space. What do I do?

I have just turned off disk quota for that drive but it doesn't seem to have made any difference. Anywhere else I need to look?

Also ther has been over 5G on that share for ages and not had this problem before. The quota was set to 5G. Is that a default. I don't remember setting it.

OK, you were correct, was a disk quota issue. Sage Line 100 created a 4.8Gb spooler file - not sure why will investigate that next! This used all that users quota up.
