As an applications software VAR, I have a user who received the message "Disk Full" or "Out of Disk Space" or similar. I explained that this was down to a Windows Access Issue of some sort.Their IT support supplier eventually agreed that it was their setting of the users Disk Space Quota but criticised the application software on the grounds that it should have known this and given a clearer message.

Is it reasonable to suggest that applications software do this? Could Windows be set to give a more precise message to the individual user?

Many thanks in advance for any comments.

You can use performance monitor to send a custom message when the disk reaches a certain % or static number.

Example.

Warning: You only have 10% of disk space left. Please clear some space.

Thanks Technicher
The important bit though is Can this be applied to the individual window users personal quota?

Yes. This can even be done with a policy editor.

If the user is such and such or the machine name is such and such drop in the performance counter and start the counter.

If it is not such and such then stop the counter or remove it all together.

Simple VBS script can handle this or built in windows function as well.
