    By the looks of it, no. The only real compromise is to create a separate partition for your users and to set quotas by that.

    It isn't actually a bad idea, though, especially for folders like Program Files.

    I have only seen Third Party Utilities to do this on Windows.

    We have talked about this in the past on the forums and I have linked to a few other solutions besides the one I posted above. I just need to find the old old posts.
