Function CreateAutoApplyQuota (
    quotaTemplateName As String,
    Path As String
) As IFsrmAutoApplyQuota


  • quotaTemplateName
    Type: System.String

    The name of a template from which to derive the quota; automatic quotas must derive from a template. The string is limited to 4,000 characters.

  • Path
    Type: System.String

    The local directory path to which the quota applies. The string is limited to 260 characters.

Return Value

Type: Microsoft.Storage.IFsrmAutoApplyQuota

Returns a IFsrmAutoApplyQuota interface to the newly created quota object. The specified template is used to initialize the quota. Use this interface to change the quota and to exclude specific subdirectories from the quota. To add the quota to FSRM, call Commit method.


When you save the automatic quota, FSRM creates quotas for all existing subdirectories under the specified directory that do not already contain a quota. When a new subdirectory is created under the specified directory, FSRM uses the properties of the automatic quota to create a quota for the new subdirectory.

If you are creating both the automatic quota and the subdirectories at the same time, you should first create the subdirectories and then create the automatic quota because it provides better performance.
