    Disk quota

    How to set up individual disk quota's for separate folders?
    I have enabled quota management but only allows individual setting per user id. Not per folder. Is this possible?

    Based on this MS article How to Enable Disk Quotas in Windows 2000 it appears that quotas are per user.

    If MS only allows set up by user. Is there a 3rd party software (that is even approved by MS) that will allow me to set quotas by folders?
    Or other suggestions?

    A quick Google for "windows 2000 folder quota" shows there are a few on offer, including:
    SpaceGuard
    and
    Quota Server

    MS has a set of rules that determine if a third party can use the 'Designed for Windows ...." logo or not. That is about the only recommendation you'll see from them in most areas. It is not an endorsement only that the vendor has followed the MS rules and the program will work with the OS. That siad, there are many more programs that run with various Windows versions that do NOT qualify than those that do. What it comes down to is you doing the investigative legwork and trying/testing the software to see if it fits your needs and environment.
