Disk quota management
Alternatively referred to as a quota, disk quota management are permissions given by administrators that set limits on the user, workgroups, or other groups of storage space. By setting a quota, this helps prevents a server or share from becoming full of data, but still allows users to save files.
Most users who send and receive e-mail or run their own webpage should be familiar with quotas. For example, an e-mail server may be setup to allow a user a quota of disk space, if they exceed their quota, the e-mail server rejects any new messages. In addition, if the file attachment is too big to fit into the allocated space, the e-mail will be rejected or deleted.
