    Hi,

    What in your opinion is the most common way to manage the above in a windows 2003 environment with say 200 users?

    Kind regards

    Disk quotos we use server manager ( A role in Server 2003/2008 ).
    For Print quotas we use a piece of software called "Papercut"

    Same here. I love the scripting side to PaperCut as it allows you to tailor the software to your very particular needs. It uses Javascript with a lot of their functions, you can achieve almost anything you would want to with a print management/monitoring solution.

    If you have Windows Server 2003 R2 on the file server you can configure volume and folder quotas using File Server Resource Manager FSRM, combined with file screens its a very powerful little tool. :)

    In the past I've used Print Manager Plus to manage print quotas but also heard good things about Papercut.
