How to Enable Disk Quotas

If you have multiple people using your home PC – and perhaps especially if some of those users are teens or “tweens” – you might be worried about someone filling up the hard drive with large amounts of personal data (music, videos, pictures). Assuming you’re the administrator of the system, you can set up disk quotas to prevent that from happening. Here’s how:

  1. Click the Start orb and select Computer.
  2. Right click the drive on which you want to set quotas.
  3. Click Properties.
  4. Click the Quota tab.
  5. Click Show Quota Settings.
  6. At the UAC prompt, click Continue.
  7. Click Enable Quota Management and check the box that says Deny Disk Space to Users Exceeding Quota Limit.
  8. Select Limit Disk Space.
  9. Type in the amount of disk space that you want new users to have, and the amount of space remaining when you want the user to get a warning message.
  10. Click OK.
