WinQuota home

In brief, every solution has its' own advantages and disadvantages. For example, Windows solution has no basic functionality to operate with directories, and as result you need other way to manage your resources effectively.

In other side, all solutions except WinQuota are not providing accurate hardware limits. So, SpaceGuard SRM uses directory rights to manage quotas and you'll get conflicts with your policy being used at the same time with quota management. WinQuota uses other algorithms to track quota limits; it provides accurate byte-n-byte limitations for all file activity without any changes of other system and security settings.

Other notice abilities like email, pager, SMS and other are not required for automated quota management. Really, it is necessary for SpaceGuard and others only as it have no advanced WinQuota techniques; and every quota overburn requires system administrator invasion to solve conflicts.

In brief, WinQuota is alone system with all basic functionality can operate without system administrator continuous assistance; the all attempts to reach over quota limits will fail at the system level, and the user' application will be notified via standard system error codes. The hard quota limit would not be exhausted in all kind of operations, including file moving, renaming, copying and other.
