You can do this via Disk Quotas. Open My Computer, right click C: drive, select Properties, select Quota and set max size disk space for each user on the disk (200-500M should suffice).

I need to do more research, but from what I can tell the answer to your question is no, you cannot set the size of the user profile.

As for the disk quotas answer, disk quotas will assign the maximum amount a disk space a user will be able to use. I question whether the user profile information is restricted to that quota.

As always, please correct me if I am wrong! Humbly, Bill

Yes, to do so run gpedit.msc. Drill down to User COnfiguration, Administrative Templates, System, User Profiles. Under there you will see several settings. One of them is Limit Profile Size. Double click it and set it to Enabled and configure the settings as you see fit.
