Map Network Drive

  recap 11:04 10 Aug 2006

I have mapped a drive on two machines (seperate user accounts), in machine one (user 1) the drive has mapped the full 25GB of space. Machine Two (user 2) has only 15Mb of space.

All permissions are the same for both users both in Shares and Security.

I would be grateful if anybody can explain, why one user only gets 15Mb while the other gets the full allocation of the mapped drive?

Have you enabled quota management in the share?

Thanks FelixTCat, have looked in to that but there is no Quota tab in the properties of the mapped drive for the user. Under admin the quota tab is visible, and mapping the drive gives the full 25Gb. All volumes are NTFS, the user has permissions to access this drive.

At first I thought, it was that they had reported (after a couple of hours) that when they log on, their profile does not work. No doing on that front.

This user still only has 15Mb of space for this mapped drive, even when a new account has been created.

Any other thoughts would be appreciated.

The quota tab is on the drive being shared, not on the mapped drive.
