File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) in Windows Server 2003 R2 Helps to Set Folder Level Storage Quota in File Server.

Windows Server 2003 R2 contains some new features that help to better administer file and storage servers, including folder level quota enforcement.
The old school disc quota was volume based, that is why it is limited to per disk, and thus it is sometimes pretty complicated to set up. Other limitations were also there. Such as, Disk quotas are per-user. In other words, quotas are based on who owns files, not on which folder they are stored in as long as the folders are on the same volume. Disk quotas are calculated using the logical size of files, not the actual physical disk space they occupy. You can’t configure disk quotas on multiple volumes simultaneously. When disk quotas are exceeded, the only notification that can be generated is having an event logged to the Event logs.

The new Quota Management tool in File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) allows administrators to monitor and manage hard disk space per volume, folder, or share. By using File Server Resource Manager, administrators can place quotas on folders and volumes, actively screen files, and generate comprehensive storage reports.
