Change quota limit for specific user Windows 2012 r2

Thor2923 used Ask the Experts™
This should be easy it has just been several years since I have tried it. We have a Windows 2012 r2 files server that has several quota templates created. Most users are assigned 1GB for their Home Directory. We do have several other options for power users though. I have a user that is currently set up with a 1GB quota and I need to move him to our 10GB template. I am in the File Server Resource Manager and see all the templates. How can I get a specific user out of 1 and in to 10? I have attached a copy of the screen I am looking at. I am sure there is an easy way to do this..thanks

You should just need to go under quota, find the user that you want to adjust from 1GB to 10Gb template and make the change.

I might be failing to recall here, but quotas in the File Server Resource Manager are applied to drives / folders, rather than users?

Separately, you can right click on a drive from Windows Explorer, select 'Properties', and 'Quota'.  If that is enabled, you can set quotas for users there.



thanks for the help, what is a previous engineer had set up all those quota templates then left the company. They were never implemented. I stumbled on them and assumed that was how we issued quotas, but come to find out I we do it the old way. I just had to right click the drive and go t Quotas and configure the specific user the old way
