I am running windows 7 on a computer, which is my FTP server.  I am using file zila FTP server.
I need to set folder limits, but have not found software out there that will do that.  I know windows has built in disk quotas, but that's only for the entire disk.  The FTP users do NOT log on to the server using any windows accounts, they just log on via FTP.   So I would like a way or an application that I can limit disk quotas by folder, not by user.

Folder level quotas in Windows are only supported under server OSes as they are intended to target user's home directories.

FileZilla does not support quotas.

You need either the OS or the FTP server to support quotas to get your desired configuration working.

CrushFTP supports folder quotas.  It's not free, but it isn't very expensive ($40 for 10 connections) and definitely cheaper than a server operating system or wingftp.  

See http://www.crushftp.com for a download.

Hope this gets you started and is worth some points to you ;)

Thanks, that's what I was thinking, that only win 2003 R2 and 2008 server supports folder quotas.  I think I'm going to buy the Serv-U FTP software, as that has folder quotas as well and we've used it in the past.

Thanks for your comments.
