Hi Experts,
I have an old W2k File Server and need to migrate the server to a Windows 2008 server.
I would like to setup quotas in the new server, but I need to figure it out how to setup the quotas according to what I am moving to the new server.
1. How to determine how much space is a user consuming in the windows 2000 server.
2. What options do I have in W2k8 to setup the quotas.
Thank you,

Yeah, give Cianox's tutorials a read over, then remember, you can keep the current file server running, add the new file server to the domain, and move the user directories to the new server, and setup quotas using group policy...
