Do any of you use quotas for user home.drives on your file servers. Can this throw up any specific challenges and what storage quotas do you allow them. I can see benefits in such an approach for capacity planning

you can use file server resource manager (FSRM) to define quota

but I would rather suggest to use file screening rules to block certain file types saved on server with FSRM

This will ensure that only work items would be saved on server under home drives and you can track usage effectively
