Network Drive Quota

Hey everyone,

I've set up a Network Driver with Windows XP Network Drive Mapping. Needless to say that this "drive" is actually a shared folder on my computer. I'm using home networking involving two computers with the aid of the Home Networking wizard.

My question to you - Is there anyway to set quota to the specific folder, or perhaps a software that can manage that? I need to set a quota of 2 GB to this folder. Any other suggestions will be gladly accepted.

Thank you for your help!

Right click on the drive, go to properties, then to the quota tab.

Thanks for your reply, but my Network Drive, as I said, is in fact a shared folder on my local drive.
I don't wish to limit quota on my drive (77GB), I just want, if possible, to set a 2GB quota on this particular shared folder.

Thank you again.

quotas are per drive per user not folder. You can investigate third party quota management software. Otherwise you create the user on the pc and assign them a quota of 2gig which will limit them on the whole system though they would only be seeing your shared folder.

Hey again,

I'm sorry for this late reply. I now understand that I can't manage quotas per folder but only per partition/user.
I actually don't trust third-party quota management softwares so I've decided to create a new 2GB capacity partition on my computer and use it as a network drive.

Thanks again!
