When trying to copy a file of any size to a shared network folder, I receive an error saying there is not enough free disk space. I have checked to make sure there is in fact free space available on our Server, which there is.  Active Directory Permission and Sharing/Security Permissions for the shared folders seem to be intact.  This is only a problem for 1 user account in our organization.

This user didn't wind up with a disk quota did they?
You can check this by:

Open Windows Explorer.
Browse to the drive on which you want to check, right-click it, and select Properties.
Click the Quota tab.
If the box beside Enable quota management is checked you have disk quota tracking enabled.

Just uncheck the box to disable it.

The user's personal folder assigned through Active Directory was full as set by disk quota.  I was not aware that it would affect saving to a shared folder located on our SBS.  Thanks for your help!
