Is there a way to set a threshold on a folder on a windows 2003 server?
Something that wont allow a user to place any more files on the share until
space has been cleared?

Ive got a temp folder on the server but people abuse it by copying heaps of
stuff there and not bothering to delete old files.


Thanks,
Grant

remember that quotas are per volume.....you can't put a quota on a folder.

As of 2003 R2 beta1 you can have per-directory quotas. These can be created
using a CLI via dirquota.exe or via a GUI with the FSRM MMC snap-in.
