File Server Resource Manager Notifications

I have a soft quota set up so I get a notification when a shared folder has reached certain size limit and that's all working fine but one notification is all I get. I want to keep getting notifications until it's back down to the size it needs to be.
Is there a way to schedule the notification for every 24 hours until it's back below the threshold?

I am using Windows Server 2008R2 Datacenter

Thanks!

FSRM will only send one notification each time the quota is broken, so it won't resend notification unless utilization goes below the quota and back over it again. There's not much you can do about this. To get an email notification regarding quota over-use in a share each day, you would need to have a script that scans the shares to determine how much space they are using, then sends a message if one or more is over.

FSRM isn't exactly the most high power solution in the world, so it's feature set is pretty light weight.
