Mapped Drive Letters show full disk space

I have a SBS2003 Server with WinXP and Win 2000 clients.

On some machines when you look at the available disk space on the mapped drive letter it shows the available space however on other computers the disk space shows full.

There is plenty of free space on the server HDD which the mapped drive points to.

This is causing problems with an application that holds its data on the shared drive.

How can I get it so that each client PC shows the fee space available on the mapped drives?

Your help appreciated.

That will be quotas.  Go to the root of the drive on the server, right click and choose Quotas tab.  You will find a default quota set and some people have probably used it up.

For SBS2003 I think you'll find the quota is generally set to 1Gb, go to the Quota entries button within this tab and you will see an entry for each user.   You can up their quota by double clicking or right click properties on one or more entries.  You can set the default quota for new users back on the main quotas tab.  This is all done on the drive with the user data on, the quota is per-volume (drive letter) on the server.
