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:

Nothing to add on the posts above, but your topic came up in Server 2008 as well. You can put folder quota's on the servers local drives for 2008/2012 using FSRM.
