We are running Windows 2003 server SP2 (not R2) and have disk quotas enabled on the drive that stores the user's home directories.

If I create a quota entry to limit the amount of disk space a particular user has, why must I delete or move the files when I want to remove the quota entry?  I just want to remove the limit not delete his files?  That doesn't make sense to me.

Plus, I have old quota entries from unknown user accounts and I can't remove these entries because it says the files are charged to this "unknown" user.  Again this makes no sense, I just want to remove the quota limit and leave the files where they are.  What gives?
