File Share Quota for a "Shared" Drive
Posted on 2012-03-20
We presently have a company wide "shared" drive (mapped file share to a drive letter) with permissions for any one to read/write. This share is used with DFS and replication to sync across 4 file servers.
Until now, there has not been any quota(s) on that share. I would like to enforce a limit on the file size to prevent someone for saving anything (movie, power point file, etc.) above a certain size. File screens do not sound like an option, because that would limit all movie file types or all power point file types, etc.
Everything I have seen in reference to disk quotas, share quotas, or quotas through FSRM talk about limiting a users total capacity. E.g. for a home directory.
Does such a function exist? If not, why? What are other people doing?
