Disk space management is an important aspect of server administration. Setting quotas allows you to specify the maximum amount of disk space available to each user in their home folder. The quota is set at the User Setting Level and/or the user level.
Max disk space sets the maximum disk space that users can consume in their home folders. in the Administrator, you can assign each user a Max disk space for that user's home folder. As the user uploads and downloads, the Server measures the user's Used disk space. Uploading files increases the Used disk space and deleting files decreases this number. If a user uploads too many files and the Used disk space equals the Max disk space that the Server administrator assigned, the user has to delete files before uploading again.
When an administrator uses Windows Explorer to add or delete files, the Server updates a user's Used disk space. Additions and deletions to a user's folder that are performed outside of the Server are not prohibited, even when the number of files added exceeds the Max disk space allowed. However, the Server will update the user's disk quota and the user is prohibited from uploading until the Used disk space is less than the Max disk space.
If users report that they are not able to upload files, check whether they have enough disk space available. If not, you or they will need to remove files from their home folder before they can upload any more files with the Server, or you might need to adjust their Max disk space allowance.
The Site level sets the limits of the user and User Setting Levels.
