Disk Quotason Workstation

I need to setup disk quotas for all users on volume C: of a domain joined Win7 workstation.

- Group Policy will set the quota but it seems to apply to System accounts, so error messages are coming up when installing software etc (especially during the workstations OS deployment)

- fsutil command will enable the quota and unrestrict the system accounts, but there is no way to set the default quota limit (eg: limit disk space to 10GB)

so what to do, neither option really works. and neither will a mix of the 2 options as GPO will proceed the command line, and then OS deployment will then fail.

but fsutil has a limit parameter on modify command :

fsutil quota [modify] <VolumePath> <Threshold> <Limit> <UserName>

Open in new window


Doesn't this work for what you need?
