YES, you can have Folder quota and then apply it to set of user. You can look at this link for more details.

That wont work for me, because it only applies to Windows Server 2003 R2. I am using using Windows Server 2003

Hi carlospzx,

hi again carlos, disk quotas are the only option you have in windows 2003 server unless you are using R2 which you obviously arent

Cheers!

carlospzx,

that jsifaq page is an unsupported app that you use at your own risk, it jstu uses a couple of freeware tools, its your call if you want to use it, just follow the steps on the site

That seems to work but it cost 700 euros, i rather upgrade the windows server to r2

yeah thought it might be expensive and probably not worth it at all - i would upgrade to R2    you can still use disk quotas with normal 2003...
