Problem with disk quotas
Posted on 2008-10-29
I haven't had much dealing with disk quotas; but it will happen soon!
Our SBS server has C, D and E drives; part of a raid trio.
All users 'Home folder' points at a folder on E' called 'Users Shared Folders'
There are some other shared folders on the 'E' drive.
A member of staff received a message stating low disk space when she tried to copy to a shared folder.
Now, I had a look at disk quotas on 'E'.
I'm confused because some people show a limit of 1GB, some show 500MB
Why? More confused because the user with the problem has 2.5GB in her private folder and she was trying to copy stuff to 'Company Pictures' folder.
Does disk quota not affect users Home folders?
And, her limit of 1GB, is that for anything else she puts on the 'E' drive in total.
I temporarily changed her limit to 2GB to rectify the problem.
There are about 10 Account Information Unavailable entries in Disk Quotas, how can I tell if these are safe to delete.
