How to do advanced domain management with Plesk 9.0.0 ?

Hi
I'm pretty new to using Plesk Control Panel (9.0.0) and have a couple of questions.
I'm using a VPS with 40GB disk space running Win. Server 2003 and IIS 6. I set up one of the ONLY two domains which will be used on this VPS successfully using the 'Default Domain Template'. Then I made quite a few changes manually in IIS 6 to this domain. Now I have discovered that the default domain template has limited my disk resource to what was its preset of 10GB.

1. Can I up this limit somehow without deleting this domain in Plesk (and my manual changes with it) ? ... because if I'm using only 2 domains, there is no point in not using disk space.
OR will  Plesk simply warn me if I were to go over 10 GB for this domain but still allow it without any other hindrance ?

2. If I set up a sub domain, is it the case (logically I would assume it is) that the disk space allocated by Plesk is within the 10GB mentioned above and therefore also limited by it ? ... or does a subdomain have its own disk space ?

thanks RR

Here's the PDF for the Plesk CLI interface:
http://download1.parallels.com/Plesk/Plesk8.3/Doc/en-US/plesk-8.3-win-cli.pdf

Example:
The following command updates the client account with the login name JohnDoe as follows: the client is allowed managing log rotation and mailing lists, backing up and restoring domains. Also, the client is allowed using Sitebuilder, the use of disk space allotted for the client is restricted to 15360 MB (15GB), the client is allowed creating up to 2 subdomains, and the expiration date of the client account is set to 2008-12-31.

>client_pref.exe --update JohnDoe -manage_log true -manage_maillists true -make_dumps true -site_builder true -disk_space 15360 -max_subdom 2 -expiration 2008-12-31

To restrict the maximum amount of disk space available to the client with the login name JohnDoe to 100 MB:

>client_pref.exe --update JohnDoe -disk_space 100 (unlimited if set to -1)

KeeBlitz : thanks, this really helped. I hadn't delved at all into the Plesk CLI until now. As I should have guessed, just so much more control. I have made all the adjustments I currently need, mostly using domain_pref in this case. A truly useful resource.

cheers RR
