Quota for folders

In windows client Operating system is it possible to set quota for a folder? ( such as win 7, win 8  ) I know that it is possible to do it for a drive.

I'm afraid not.  You can limit number of concurrent connections to a folder if you share it, but not the size the folder can reach.  That can only been done at a server level.

You cant set the quota on the Win 8 machines drives but the Win 8 client will adhere to server disk quotas just fine.



not possible.
well, this is at least some kind of a workaround:
