How do I increase the folder quota?
You can use the File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) tool to increase the folder’s quota in Windows Server. The properties section offers the Enable quota management option to set the new quota limit in the Quota limit (MB) field. You will need an administrator account to set this up. The admin can also set up action to send an email or trigger an entry in the event log when the limit exceeds.
What happens when a quota is reduced?
Based on the configuration set by the administrator, the user will be limited from saving any additional data inside the folder. The limit will apply until the user removes some files to match the new quota limit. The administrator will also get an email and event log about it. He also needs to ensure that limiting data doesn’t cause any damage. Hence an advance notice about the change would be a good idea.
