I have a windows 2008 R2 volume which is organized like this (because of the high number of directories):


I have enabled Windows FSRM to apply quotas to E:\, with the auto-apply option.

However, it seems that the quota is applied on the intermediate folder (E:{first_letter}) which means the quota is shared by all users in the intermediate folder.

Does the FSRM GUI have an option for situations like this or do I have to generate a quota for each intermediate folder ?

You need to createa quota for every intermediate folder, sorry. THis is not a supported scenario withou that interim manual steop.


I would imagine that this can be done via Powershell
