    I am configuring the Quote management for the C Drive in windows XP, and it allows to limit users quota to (insert number here) kb, mb, or GB.
    I am wondering if i set that limitation, will it limit all users to that number?
    lets say 3gb, so if 3gb is used, no one will be able to access the disk,
    or, is it for per user, so every user gets to have 3gb.

    Please let me know.

    Thank you,

    You need to use fsutils from a command line to modify quotas on a per user basis so that different users will have different limits.

    thx, I tested it by moving data to one user, and it did not effect usage for other user. I will keep the fsutil in mind, but the built in quota management will allow me to do the same.
