Windows Server 2003 R2 Disk Quota questions

Does Windows Server 2003 R2 support setting quotas along with file
filtering?

For example, I want to set a quota on folder contains folders of User
directories yet I don't want their PST archives to be included within
their quota.

You can't do that. But you can assign ownership of .pst files to some other
account. That way .pst files will not be counted in user's quota.

Hello sakamura,

I read again the posting because of Dusko's answer. I was misunderstanding
the question and Dusko is correct. You can not exlude the .pst in the counting
of a quota.

Dusko is referring to Quota that are set on a disk drive. This is by ownership.
If you use the Quotas in FSRM these are not owner dependent so you only solution
would be to store PST files in some other location (network share) and use the
filtering system to allow only PST file to be stored there. This will not stop
users from storing a file after renaming it to a PST and the renaming back after
storing it.
