I hope someone is able to give me some insight to my issue.  I am trying to set quotas on users profile.  My first question is what if my users profiles are redirected to a different directory.  My second question is can i specify what is and isnt included with the quota as far as what user profile folders? (ie, documents,music, photos)  

Essentially what i am trying to do is limit my user profile size.  I am trying to do this via group policy.

User profile quotas don't affect redirected folders because the folder is not included in the profile. You will need to use disk quotas to manage the size of the redirected folders. Those quotas should be applied directly on the folders in question.


You can include and exclude certain folders from roaming, which will determine whether they are managed by profile quotas or disk quotas.
