Disk Quotas...

Hi, I now realize ( too late ) that Disk Quotas can only be applied at the volume-level.

Does anyone know of a utility / software that applies quotas at the **directory level** ?

Thanks !!

There is third party software.  It's not very cheap.  Check out Storage Exec (Storage Central):

Also, SpaceGuard

There are almost certainly others as well.

You can apply the disk quota to your volume, then override the Disk Quota for the specific drives that need to be a shared resource.

Under the volumes Quota tab click Quota Entries and lift the restriction on the appropriate shares. Cheap workaround.

Well, this *IS* an old question, but just to add, I've read that Windows Server 2003 R2 will support quotas on a directory level - I have NOT been able to test this
