Hi Exports,
I try to implement the Quota Management on a network shared file server to quota volumes or folders, that server run Windows Server 2008 R2 OS.
Is there any way that I can set the quota quantities with the Active Directory’s security groups instead of user’s account? For example, I could set group1’s quota quantity to 5 GB and group2’s to 10 GB. That means the person who is a member of group1 has 5 GB space and he/she has 10 GB space if he/she belongs to group2.
Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately this is not possible. You can only set up quota on volume, share, folder. But root folder's quota will overwrite any other (on lower levels)
