I have several shares on a server running 08r2 that I have users dumping files to.

I would like to limit each user to be able to use only a specific amount of the space (quota)

Any help on how to configure this is appreciated. Thanks.

You would use the File Server Resource Manager and make per-user quotas.

You can use templates to enforce queries per-user or per-folder. In your case, you'll want user likely.
