Response to: Managing individual's quota

It sounds like your difficulty may be because you have users' personal folders and departmental shared folders on the same quota-enabled NTFS volume. Since quotas are implemented in Windows on a per-user per volume basis, files users create count towards their quotas regardless of what folder they are stored in on that volume.

You might try moving the shared folders to a different NTFS volume and then enabling and configuring disk quotas on that volume.

    You are correct, of course, but it is not a practical solution as slicing and dicing limited physical disk space really limits future growth and changes. I find it's much better to keep a single flat volume whenever possible.
