Server 2008 folder Quota Exceptions

I'm trying to enforce quotas on a particular folder and it's not working how i need it to.
It's a Server 2008 file server and i've setup the quotas in File Server Resource Manager.

I'm trying to enforce a 200mb quota on:
E:\Folder 1
And a 2gig quota on:
E:\Folder 1\ Folder 2

What's happening is everyone is sharing the 200mb quota which is being applied to E:\Folder 1 For starters I don't want it working like this, I want each user to have a 200mb quota to the folder not a single quota shared by everyone.
Do i need to create individual quotas for every user on this path? There are 500+ users who will access it....

Next I want Folder 2 to either not have a quota applied to it, or to have a larger quota than Folder 1.

Can anyone point me to some documentation or give me an idea where i'm going wrong?
