Hello,

We have win 2008 AD, each user in our organization has a home folder on the network, many users place personal files there that some times reach over 10GB, is there a way I can setup a quota on users home folders using GPO?

Thank you,

Sergey

This is not done via GPO it is done using "File Server Resource Manager" role on your file server in question. You can setup individual quotas or an entire share. You can also use "File Screen" as well to block specific file types if you do not want them to be on the file server i.e. mp3,mp4,PST etc.

Take a look at the link below which provides all of the steps to setup and configure this...
