Voodoo,

What you are referring to is called a disk quota. You can set default limits that apply to all users or if you need to set different limits for each user, you can do this too.

Here's a M$ article that describes how:

There's a lot of "stuff" in the article about doing this with scripts, but it also includes instructions for doing everything via the Windows GUI too.
