This is a followup question from Disk quota problem in Windows Server SBS 2003, which has not yet been resolved.

When I run quota query (fsutil quota query e:) under the administrator account, I get an error saying "Error: Access is denied."

Apparently I can't access the NTFS-quota information from the E: drive of the Windows SBS 2003 server. Is this problem related to USN journal? I checked C: has USN journal while E: doesn't.

In my case the solution was to delete the partition in Windows Disk Management, and again create a NTFS partition. After that quota work fine.

Yeah, formatting that partition will solve the problem. But is there anyway to fix it without a reformat? – deddebme Dec 14 '10 at 14:21
