enable Quotas

by markp24 In reply to folder size limits

On windows server you can enable Quotas for a drive.

so if you have the "D" drive as you users share, you can right click the D drive, choose properties and enable quotas, and set each user with indiviual limmits or all users with the same limit, also set warning messages at a certian usage level.
