How can I impose disk quotas on my users in Windows 2000?

I want to impose a lower limit for a given disk in MB and then have the administrator receive an e-mail when this limit is reached. How can I do that?
I think you are asking about quotas. Windows 2000 has a basic quota service that can be assigned on drives to limit per-user MB usage and notify the user when the limit is reached. Usually notification is sent to the Event View logs. If you want more versatility, you'll need to use a third party quota tool such as QuotaAdvisor from Sunbelt Software.
