Windows 2003 reporting wrong disk space

I have just installed a new Windows 2003 Small Business Server. C drive 15GB, d: Cd, e: 120GB.  there is about 10GB installed on the e drive. This info=ormation is being correctly reported in disk manager. However in explorer and at dos prompt the e: drive is being reported as 1GB with only 32mb free. I have tried chkdsk, disk defrag and a reboot. Any ideas appreciated as we are due to go live in 8 hours,

Thanks

If you are using Small Business Server, this is set as 'on' as default. Have you re-run any of the wizards recently? That can turn things on...

You mean at the command line? What utility are you using to check the size? DISKPART?

Found it!! The disk quota had been set. Don't know why or how but sorted it.
Thanks anyway

Hi

Right clicking on this drive on the server, and selecting properties. You will then see a few tabs, one of these will be Quota. You can then edit the entries or set the limits for your users on the server.
It is a good way to stop users filling up your disk space and could cause issues if the contents gets too large for your backup device.
Removing this limit, as you seem to have done will show you the entire capacity of the server disk space available.

At least now, you know what you did :)

I can asure you I did not do this to set the quota. Deal with small sub 25 user networks and never use/require quotas so never switch on. No idea how it got set

Key component of answer is the fact then disk quota is on by default
