Scripting Question

Limit Users' Network Drive Storage Space??

01/09/2019 472 views

This might be a long shot...

Is there a way to limit the size of a network drive on a PC with the K1000?  If so, can an automatic alert pop up when the user logs on telling the user their network drive has x amount of storage space left?  We have a login script that connects users' network drives as an "H:" drive.  If there is a way for the K1000 to recognize the H: drive and set limits to it, we could better control the users' storage space.

You can handle this with the windows quota level. I personally would keep it on the storage server/AD level with the disk quotas.

With the KACE you can notify or run a script regarding of the filling and reading it out, but not really limiting it.

A good Idea would be a a Custom Inventory Rule like ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /c wmic logicaldisk get size,freespace,caption | findstr H: )

(maybe the command  fsutil volume diskfree h: may be more effective in that case)
Then you can create labels from it to notify admins and users.
