Hi,

I  have windows 2008 DC in my network. I have a file server and users folders are stored in that server.
All the users folders are mapped to users system when they login using GP. Now I want to configure quota for all users folders. Normal users - 2Gb and Management 10GB. How I can configure this using group policy

My folder structure is as follows

home
->IT
->purchase
-Management

again IT have subfolders (users folders) and so on

Any help is appriciated

Quotas are configured using the File Server Manager in Windows 2008. Not Group Policy.

That's right. Above post is correct. You have to use File Server Resource Manager on your file server and create separate templates for quota management. Then you can accomplish your task.
