Folder quota?

Folder quota?

0 Votes

Originally from ticket #106611.

Is there a way to set space quota's on folders? For example, I created a Technology folder for our staff but I would like to limit the amount of space it can use to around 10GB.

Hello Gabriel,

At present, there is no way to set folder quotas using Egnyte. We are exploring a quota system, but this would be user-based. 

Which would be more useful to you: user-based quotas or folder-based quotas?

Thanks for your feedback,

Trey

The option to do both would be GREAT, but if I had to choose between the two, user-based quotas would be my choice.

Gotcha. Thanks for the quick response.

I agree with both...I had a group of users that went from 30G to 260G in about a year.  Cant seem to get them to delete stuff at the moment.  Setting a hard limit and making them choose would be GREAT!

Hey Joel,

We've heard a number of requests for both folder and user quotas and this is something that we are exploring for a future release. We know it's an administrative hurdle not having them.

Thank you for your business and for taking the time to make a feature suggestion.

BUMP - any progress on this?  I think it's almost a requirement to have this feature to be honest, to keep users from going nuts like what's happening in Joel's case.
