To manage disk quotas on a remote computer

  1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Map Network Drive.

  2. In the Map Network Drive dialog box, in the Folder box, type the path to the volume on the remote computer for which you want to manage disk quotas, and then click Finish.

  3. After you connect to the remote computer's volume, open My Computer.

  4. Right-click the remote volume for which you want to manage disk quotas, and then click Properties.

  5. In the Properties dialog box, click the Quota tab.

  6. On the Quota tab, click Quota Entries.

    The Quota Entries window appears. Each row in the list contains information for a user of the volume.

Notes

  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure. For more information, see Default local groups, Default groups, and Using Run as.

  • To open My Computer, click Start, and then click My Computer.

  • If the volume is not formatted with the NTFS file system, or if you are not a member of the Administrators group, the Quota tab is not displayed in the volume's Properties dialog box.

  • To manage disk quotas on a remote computer volume, you must create a share from the remote volume's root directory and you must be a member of the Administrators group on the remote computer.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
