Using Server 2008 with File Server Resource Manager and quotas:

I have a hard quota set on a shared directory that also stores .bkf files in a subfolder.  How do I either 1) exclude the sub-folder from the parent quota , or 2) exclude all .bkf files from the quota?

No i don't block by user, i block by path, but i want to exclude a sub-folder and/or exclude a certain file type from the quota on the path.

I did some more research and tried to perform this task on our server.  Quotas do not allow for the exclusion of file types.  To do this, you'd have to exclude saving the bkf file and save the files on another share.
