Add the File Services role to the machine if you haven't done so yet, File Server Resource Manager is a part of it. FSRM will allow you to create folder-specific quotas, file screening, and reports

Did you check in the profile users of the Domain Controller? Normallly there, you put each quota for each user.

yes genus
i have done that but in my knowledge correct if  am wrong
if i apply quota on the folder using FSRM it will be quota on folder per user
for example if i put quota on folder per user let us say 30 MB (the limit size)  and the folder will be accessed by three users
i will end up with  90MB limit right?
please correct me if i am wrong
thanks

Not with FSRM; FSRM is the real deal, it's strictly folder based, which limits even administrators.
Only the standard quota management that has been available since Windows 2000 is owner based; FSRM is available since W2k3 R2 and has to be installed as separate Windows component.
