Quota size limit on Shared folder

Can i set a quota size limit on a folder?
Eg. I have shared a folder on MS Windows 2003 Server Std Edt for a group of
users to store their data. I want to set a quota size limit of 10GB for that
folder. Once the folder hit 10GB, user cannot save anything in that folder.

Hello 2Sweet,

You can only set a quota on the complete volume. For Folder volumes you have
to install R2 which requires an additional license.
