I just purchased a new server to host our general file shares and user home folders. The server is running Windows 2003 Svr Std R2 SP2 and I have the file server role installed. The user home folders are d:\userhomefolders\[username].
I would like to create quotas on each users home folder and I'm wondering what the best method of doing this is. I can't create quotas at the volume level because there are other, non-quota folders on the volume, so I need to do this at folder level. Since quotas are calculated based on ownership, I don't think I can apply the quota to d:\userhomefodlers either; I'm thinking it must be applied on each user's folder directly.
Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to approach this? I wish it calculated quotas based on the size of the files in the folder and not based on ownership but I don't think it can be done.
