Completely Remove Disk Quotas

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I'm in dire need!  We just went into production today on a Windows 2008 R2 server.  Over the weekend I copied tons of files (100GB+) into newly created shares.

I had my users login today and I'm working on copying their files into their redirected folders (My Documents).  The share name has previously existed, but their account (ID) was created automatically on the fly today.

Whenever I hit 500MB for a user I get a disk space error indicating that there isn't enough space.  I'm logged in as Administrator.

The Event Log on the server shows:  
User ****\Administrator has exceeded the 100% quota threshold for the quota on E:\Profiles$\Staff$\atkinson on server STORAGE. The quota limit is 500.00 MB, and 499.92 MB currently is in use (99% of limit).

I did set quota limits when I was back in my testing phase, but have since removed them all.  I can't find where this is coming from?
