Hello,

I need to implement quotas on a Windows Server 2008 File Server. I was going to implement Disk Quotas but saw that Microsoft recommends using File Server Resource Manager.  I need to apply quotas on  60 User's folders and various Group folders.

I created a couple of Quotas and applied the first one to Users Folders and then I found out that I could not apply the second quota  to another folder ex. MSmith in the User's Folder.  My issue is that I have about 45 users that need only 250mb and the last 15 users need  500mb, 1GB, and 2GB and they are all located in a folder called Users.  What would be the best way for me to do this?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Move those account to another root folder or apply quotas to each user folder separately :/ Quota is always winning at the top of the folders structure.
