Disk Quota & mapping need to be addressed differently

We can find "Default quota limit and warning level" in Computer Configuration - Policies - Administrative Templates - System - Disk Quotas. However it will be applied to each user on each of the NTFS file system volumes. This policy need to be applied on the server where you are keeping the data

thanks ram_kerala for your links...
but sorry to say i found it bit complex & at the end of the page it says ..it might not be completable with Windows Server R2,
I am enclosing some files based on vb script (found on internet :) with excel sheets) but unable to understand...(pls rename the file to .rar)
kindly have a look & advice if I can can accomplish my goal with some .vbs file which can work with R2 as well..
many thanks in advance...
