    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for your reply. I am looking for a solution like a folder redirection with a limit of 2GB. The domain users' desktop and documents files want to save to the server automatically. This is my requirement. Now I have enabled folder redirection but there is no limit so users occupy all the allocated space in the server.

    As per my knowledge for the FSRM solution, I need to create folders manually for all users. Our network has more than 1000 users so it will be difficult for me. And I don't want to allow domain admins to view users' files.
