NTFS in Windows Server 2003 supports disk quotas, which enable you to restrict the amount of disk space a given account can use. Quotas enable you to more effectively manage storage space because you can parcel out the space on an as-needed basis. Quotas also force users to conserve their designated storage space, compelling them to delete files when no longer needed. You can configure how quotas are enforced when a given user's quota is reached, by either denying additional space to the user or simply displaying a warning message (see Figure 26-4).
