Edit auto quota properties
Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2
When making changes to an auto quota, you have the option of extending those changes to existing quotas in the auto quota path. You can choose to modify only those quotas that still match the original auto quota, or all quotas in the auto quota path, regardless of any modifications made to the quotas since they were created. This feature simplifies the process of updating the properties of quotas that were derived from an auto quota by providing one central point where all changes can be made.
If you choose to apply the changes to all quotas in the auto quota path, you will overwrite any custom quota properties that you may have created.
To edit an auto quota
In Quotas, select the quota that you want to modify.
Right-click the Quota entry and click Edit quota properties or select Edit quota properties from the actions pane, under Selected Quotas. This opens the Edit Auto Apply Quota dialog box.
Under Derive properties from this quota template select the new quota template that you want to apply. You can review the properties of each quota template in the summary list box.
Click OK. This will open the Update Quotas Derived from Auto Apply Quota dialog box.
Select the type of update you want to apply:
If you have quotas that have been modified since they were automatically generated, and you do not want to change them select Apply auto apply quota only to derived quotas that match the original auto apply quota. This option will update only those quotas in the Auto Apply Quota Path that have not been edited and maintain the original auto apply quota properties.
If you want to modify all existing quotas in the Auto Apply Quota Path, select Apply auto apply quota to all derived quotas.
If you want to keep the existing quotas unchanged, but make the modified auto quota effective for new folders in the Auto Apply Quota Path, select Do not apply auto apply quota to derived quotas.
