<VolumePath>

Required. Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon).

<Threshold>

Sets the limit (in bytes) at which warnings are issued. This parameter is required for the fsutil quota modify command.

Remarks

  • Disk quotas are implemented on a per-volume basis, and they enable both hard and soft storage limits to be implemented on a per-user basis.

  • You can use write scripts that use fsutil quota to set the quota limits every time you add a new user or to automatically track quota limits, compile them into a report, and automatically send them to the system administrator in e-mail.
