Quota size not displayed in my Computer (XP)

I have just rolled out a new Windows 2008 File Server.  We have our quotas setup through File Server Resource Manager for 2GB per user.  Vista users show that they have a 2GB limit, but XP users show the entire drive (800 GB) space available.  I want to see if I have missed something during the configuration that would properly display these limits.
Thanks,
Paul

This is a bug in windows XP.

The only way to get the actual quota to display in XP is to not use the File Server Resource Manager and use the quota on the actual drive. Microsoft will not fix this.

(right click the drive, set quota, XP user will see quota pertaining to his user account)

Good luck.
