Hi,
I don't think you van do it by folder alone this way, but disk quota (select properties on the disk in explorer) allows you to set a quota by disk. might be worth a look....

Disk Quota: Without a 3rd party utility (not sure of one that can, btu assuming there is one) to limit the space, it's not possible on Win2k.

What needs to be done: Create a separate partition (disk) on your server and enable quotas. Once this isdone, move all users' folders you're referring to - to this new drive. Quotas can only be implemented on a logical drive in windows 2000.

Using the Windows built-in Quota management utility, you can only apply quotas against a volume/partition. Quotas may not be applied against other objects (i.e. folders). Quota application is determined by file/folder ownership.

There are thirdparty utilites available (like SpaceGuard by Advanced Toolware - www.advtoolware.com) that will allow you to set quotas on objects other than volumes (i.e. shares or folders). Run a search on Google (www.google.com) using the keywords "disk quota software) to look at other possible solutions.
