Hi

I have a user that when he logon to his computer all map drives to share folders on the server show red full with only 1 meg left.
That's not the case since the server has over 400gb free space left and if any other user logon to that same PC everything show fine. Also if the user that has the problem logon to a different PC the drive still show red. So looks like is associate it to his account.
He has full permission to the folder. He can see read and save files as long as they are few Kb
Any idea were I should look?
And yes he is on the same OU as the rest of the users.
Server is  a SBS 2003 and client is Win 7 Pro

Check the disk quota from the actual physical drive on the server. If the users are running out of space, the amount they are allocated in the disk quota minus the amount of data they have used is how much should be remaining on their shared drive.

The fact that only one user has that problem I never thing about the quota.
I disable it and now it works perfect.
Thank you for your help
