Posted on 2011-10-03

I'm looking to set up Directory Quota for my Windows 2003 Server R2. I have many users accessing a shared folder on my C Drive. And there are sub directories. I want to set a directory quota for these sub directories.

Can I get this done by setting up DFS? If so, how do I get this done please?

    Yes you ca. You can use for that File Server Resource Manager (FSRM). Create Quota template and link to a folder. All subfolder will inherit that quota setting.

    More about that at in your previous post this day ;)

    DFS is virtual folder structure. There are only a  links to existing folders on File Server. So, when you enable Quota on a folder on File Server, it will be also applied within DFS structure
