Disk Quotas Denying Disk Space when not Set

I wanted to monitor my users disk space usage on my primary file server and so I enabled disk quotas and set a maximum limit and a warning limit but did not set "Deny disk space to users exceeding quota limit". But the server is denying disk space at the limit I set any way, raising the limit, disabling disk quotas, and taking ownership of the files and removing the quota entries have not worked. This server is a MS Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition and is also a domain controller, dns server, and dhcp server. Thanks for the help.

Right now I have Disk Quotas disabled so I'm not getting any logs, but when it was enabled I just got the regular logs saying the user has exceeding the warning limit or the user has exceeded the allowed limit. There were no error or odd events logged that I could find.

It seems there was also a "Hard" quota limit set in the DFS share as well that was denying disk space. I changed that to a soft limit and everything is working well. Thanks
