How to Change Notification Limits of Quotas Available to specified Users


In today's article you will learn how to change Notification Limits of the quotas available to various users.

In one of my previous articles I told you How to Assign Disk Quota to Particular User in Windows Server 2012.

Whenever a quota is assigned to a User and he uses the entire quota then notifications are generated at various levels and are provided to the user so that he can delete unnecessary files and can make space in the quota or can request to extend the quota.

You can make changes in the Notification Limits through the File Server Resource Manager, for that you need to use following

Step 1

First of all open the Server manager of your Windows Server 2012.
