Re: NTFS quota vs. FSRM quota

Hello Madtom_182,

NTFS is a disk quota, so the added accounts can not use more then the allowed space on the complete disk. With FSRM you can use use folder quotas and differentiate it for your needs.

Also see here for FSRM (expand the + in the left pane):

In Windows Server 2003 R2, you can put quota on disk which enable a
"by user" quota and you can put quota on folder with File Server
Resource Manager.

On a test server, I enabled both, and it works pretty fine.
But does someone try it on production server?
And, especially, does it impact performance?
Is there any tricks to make it works fine?
