Hi,

I have a SBS 2003 server which also runs exchange 2003 SP1. I want to limit the user shared folders on the network to 150MB. Now the company that setup this temporary server where pretty brainless. They only created one volume on the RAID5 and everything runs on the C:\ drive.

Now I want to know if I set the Disk Quotas on the C:\ drive to 150MB for a specific group of users and their mailbox size limits are set to 300Mb what would the effect be?. Would this work does SBS 2003 see the information store seperate from normal disk usage or not?.

Kind Regards,

Johan

if you have one drive only and you want to set quota @150MB, the mailbox size will also be restricted for the users.
do one thing, apply disk quotas @150 Mb and configure MS outlook or any mail client you are using to use pst file(in case of outlook) for delivery of mails to all users. so that users will get theri mails to local machine and no need to set mailbox size for 300Mb

Hi,

Nah thanks I'll just waiting till my original server is fixed and setup multiple volumes. I am actually a SAP consultant. But our sister company was suppose to setup our server after we moved building and the idiots couldn't even sort the DNS properly. Thanks for the answer.

Regards,

JOhan
