Mac volumes on NT

By sister-Inlaw ·
I need to assign a disk quota to my mac volumes that the macs can access- is there a way of hiding the available space left for them?. or creating a quota?
the problem is that if they see 2 megs vs 3 gigs, they'll be a little smarter in their decision making as to what to put on their and what not too...
thanks.

Mac volumes on NT

Hi Ron,

their is no possibilty for NT to hide Diskspace either no way for diskquotas. U have to take a third party util like Mrs. Marple, with this on U could quota the diskspace for your Mac's. ... But this sort of tools drill into the ntfs sheme, a possible problem if U want later upgrade to W2k.

Regards

Frobo

I'd recommend carving smaller volumes out of the existing disks. Rather than making one 2 GB drive available to your mac users, make two 1 GB partitions, and don't make one of them available to the mac users. If the 1 GB partition fills, you can backup the data, recreate the original 2 GB partition, and restore the data, and look like a genius for having some forethought for future expansion.

You could always upgrade to W2K Server.

Hope this helps.

Mike
