I have a user trying to save a 231mb file on our network server. It has PLENTY of room, however he is getting an error message when he tries to save it to the server. "There isn't enough space left on the disk to perform this operation". He can save it to the desktop just fine.  Is there a size limit somwhere or something I can change? Client is Windows XP, server is Win2K3 Active Directory. He is trying to save this file over the network.  He can save smaller files just fine. He has a directory with a quota, but cannot save to even the non personal directories where he has permission.

this is because of the disk quota enabled for him on that server. he must delete some data to make up free space otherwise you have to increase the quota limit for him. to increase the quota limit -
go to disk properties - quota - quota entries - locate that user - properties -change the quota limit and apply

Why would the quota prevent him from saving to other "public" locations? I understand this would prevent him from saving to his personal user directory, but I didn't think it would extend to other shares that most users have access to.

quota applies to disk drive and not to only user's home folder. so if user saves anything on the disk anywhere including his home folder, it will be counted under his quota limit only
