I'm currently using FileZilla FTP server, which is a nice free server but running into issues of not being able to limit/set quotas for folder which users have access to.

Anybody know of an FTP server that would allow limiting how much a user could upload to their root folder?

Forgot to mention this is for Win 2008/03.

Windows 2003R2 and newer have support for NTFS directory-quotas. While not built into the IIS FTP server, the IIS FTP server will honor them. We've found dir-quotas a more flexible solution than user-quotas overall. They're managed through the File Server Resource Manager.

We have been using CrushFTP on Windows 2003 and 2008 and it does all that you require and more. Cost effective and very feature rich. Great support as well.

It is not really the ftp server's task to ensure disk utilization for users. I am not sure what kind of your users you have but you could use the standard quota facility.
