Disk Quota CSE Background

Disk quotas allow administrators to control the usage of hard drive space by their users. The policy is applied on a per user/per drive letter basis. This allows an administrator to keep a user from filling up a hard drive that multiple people share.

If the Disk Quota CSE is unable to read the registry on the target computer, or is unable to access a list of the available hard drives on the target computer, the Disk Quota will not be applied. This could be potentially lead to a user unwittingly filling up all the hard drive space on a server or other unwanted situations.
