Hello. I was wondering if there is a way to create a forced sized directory, a directory that is only so big and won't allow any more files to be added to it. The reason being I wish to create several directories of a specific size (size of a DVD or BVD) and put files in them before actually writing them out to the DVD's. I know a program like Trucrypt can do something similar but it would be overkill. Any suggestions?

you could set a quota on the folder, there are many different options as well as group policy which is built in, but it depends on your situation..
