Hard Disk Space Allocation to Users - Server

by pixelsworld / November 19, 2007 5:13 PM PST

Hi all,

My office is currently running a Main Server on a LAN with Windows Server 2000 as the OS. The Server is also used a data backup device for the users. We would like to allocate specific back up space (in terms of size, say, 2 GB each) to the users. For example, a specific user is allocated a 2 GB limit on the Server. All users won't be allocated the same size as this would vary according to their needs. Is this possible? If yes, can someone please explain how it should be done.
