Folder size limits

Hi,

I have a question about folder size limits (quotas).  I have a client who has a Server 2003 domain, and Windows 7 desktops.  I created a shared folder on the network, and the HR guy is trying to copy 4.5 GB of data to the folder, but it tops out at 2GB.  I assume this is a default limit within Windows.  I'm looking around at the group policies, but I cannot find where to adjust it at.

Thanks for any help.

What kind of files system do You have on the share  ? NTFS ?
2 GB limit per file can point for FAT16 partition, FAT32 has 4 GB limits per file.

You can increase disk quotas per user profile.

Pradeep08, that was exactly what the problem was.  I wasn't the admin who configured this server, and when I was doublechecking the file system type, I noticed the quota tab.  I adjusted the quota and we will be good now.  Thanks!
