Folder Quotas

Folders have their own properties which further help in managing your files. All folders in NetFiles can have storage quotas applied and enforced. If granted permission to change the quota of a folder, you regulate how much information can be added to that folder. When an action is attempted which would cause a quota to be exceeded, the action is aborted and an error message is returned.

Change a Folder's Quota

  1. Select the folder for which you wish to change quota.
  2. Select Manage icon from the top toolbar.
  3. Select Storage Quota.  Note: Quotas on user home folders cannot be changed (limited to 5GB).
  4. Determine the amount of space you would like to grant this folder. It must be less than or equal to the amount of space granted in your home folder. Click Apply.
