Disk Quota and .net (WMI and Microsoft.DiskQuota.1)
Today I had a con-call to talk about disk quota and how to automate the setting and reading of Quota. So i thought that I would post a little about Disk quota stuff.
There are 2 okay options.
#1 WMI (way to slow for a lot of things (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/wmisdk/wmi/disk_quota_provider.asp))
So my team needed a way to enumerate a users current quota limits and then + or - from them. WMI was very slow to do this. But DiskQuota.1 is quite fast. It is not well documented that it works on remote servers either. So I wrote a little something up.
So here is some cs (let me know if you want it in VB) that has functions on how to get and set quota info with Microsoft.diskquota.1
