Quotas

Hello members,

There is one question I have to ask about quotas,

To set up a quota you must set it up initially through Windows explorer
and the the volumes property box. Here you set the quota as enabled
or disabled, and u add the AMOUNT OF SPACE .

Then you go to Quota Entries, and there you can even INCREASE THE AMOUNT
OF DISK SPACE "PAST" THE INITIAL AMOUNT THAT YOU PUT IN
IN THE QUOTA VOLUME AREA.

WHY then is the purpose of putting in the amount of Disk space in
the Volume Area, when you again put another Quota limit
in for each individual user. I don't understand why you are putting
in Quota Limits TWICE, ONCE ON THE VOLUME AND ONCE ON THE USER,
IT doesn't make sense to me. Can someone explain the reason for this.
Thankyou. ric

why can't you just put in the Quota limit for the USER, why do you need to put it in again on the Volume.

    By putting the quota limit on the volume, any additional users that are created automatically take the volume quota by default.

    hope this helps ;)
