Hello; just looking for some quick info.  I know Symantec had a product that was called storage exec that was used to help with quota's and other file server management aspects.  It looks like that may no longer be available, i am just wondering if anyone has experince with the new features built into Windows server 2008 and how well they work.  I am paricularly interested in being able to assign quotas at folder level (not drive level, as each folder will need a different quota limit).
Thanks
