Space allocation

By nijole ·
Is there anyway to allocate users a controlled space on the network without the use of a third party software in Win nt 4.0.I am trying to limit the size of network folders for my users.

Sorry, looks like it's 3rd party or upgrade to Win2k. This is a new feature for Windows 2000.

Hi, you can't limit home folders per se, but you can limit the size of user profiles. Use system policy editor and under file, click new policy. You can set defaults, or add users and/or groups. In either case, select users or groups and policy options come up. Scan down to windows NT system and you'll see "limit profile size" You can limit the size in kB. You can also have users alerted when profile size approaches its limit. This is the only built-in option with NT4.0. Good luck.

It's definitely 3rd party in NT4.
Short term solution: since we deal mostly with small businesses who are cost conscious, we've implemented the strategy of a seperate disk or partition for only user data. Doesn't by you individual quotas but it limits the size of the entire share/volume. We let the users police themselves [and it's amazing the things that are said between "friends" when space is an issue].
