Set quotas

by DigitalXeron In reply to disk quota WONDERS

I recommend setting the quotas to his entire profile directory, I belive in Windows XP it is:

c:\documents and settings\username\

or on NT:


so on the server, set it not to just the documents directory, set it to the entire profile dir, that'll prevent users from dodging their quota via loading files onto the desktop

Wrong forum.

by deepsand In reply to disk quota WONDERS

This is a tech. problem, in search of a solution.

It properly belongs in "Technical Q&A," not in "Discussions." Please re-post there.

Not only will you be more likely to attract the attention of those seeking to provide answers, but you will also make it easier for those seeking discussions to find such.

Thank you.
