How can I set the disk quota for a group (vs. a single user) on an NTFS volume?

I'm using Windows Server 2003 SP2.

Not possible natively but I recall there were some third party products that provided that functionality back when I first started with Server 2000, so it may be worth investigating along those lines. – John Gardeniers Aug 30 '10 at 22:19

As I commented to my unfortunately incorrect answer to your previous question - "Quotas only exist for users. My bad."

I've never used it, but Windows 2003 R2 introduced something called File Server Resource Manager which apparently gives you more options when it comes to quotas. In the original implementation, NTFS' quota support applied to users and volumes, not (sub)folders/groups.

Edit: just noticed you said SP2 and not R2. Not sure if you actually have R2, but I'll leave this here anyway.
