    How to: Enable or Disable Log Event when Disk Quota Limit Exceeded in Windows

    Enable or Disable Log Event when Disk Quota Limit Exceeded in Windows [​IMG]
    Information file system volumes, allowing administrators to control the amount of data that each user can store on a specific NTFS volume. Administrators can optionally configure the system to log an event when users are near their quota, and to deny further disk space to users who exceed their quota. Administrators can also generate reports, and use the event monitor to track quota issues.

    Enforcing disk quota limits is optional. When users reach an enforced disk quota limit, the system responds as though the physical space on the volume were exhausted. When users reach an unenforced limit, their status in the Quota Entries window changes, but they can continue to write to the volume as long as physical space is available.

    You can set Windows to record an event log in Event Viewer whenever users exceed their disk quota limit on a NTFS volume.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable logging an event when users exceed their disk quota limit in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to enable or disable logging an event when users exceed their disk quota limit.

    Note To see the event log for when users exceed their disk quota limit:

    A) Open Event Viewer (eventvwr.msc)
    B) Open Windows Logs and System in the left pane of Event Viewer.
    C) Look for events with an Event ID of 37 in the middle pane of Event Viewer.

    Windows 10 - File Folder Quota Set - Is it possible?

    Hi, please ask him for the exact text of the message- you can then research it properly.

    See these - but these refer to a drive, not a folder:

    Enable or Disable to Enforce Disk Quota Limits in Windows | Windows 10 Tutorials
    https://www.digitalcitizen.life/simple-questions-what-are-disk-quotas-how-set-them-windows


    On another note, please encourage him to save personal data on another disk or partition- and in particular not on his desktop.

    Things can go wrong on the 6 monthly upgrades, when people lose their desktop content being allocated temporary profiles.

    And of course, back up. Disks fail. Bad things happen.

    Exceeding my internet provider's daily MB limit

    I live in a country that limits my daily internet connection to 800MB per day. I had no problem staying under that limit when using my Samsung laptop with Windows 7. Last week I purchased a Dell Inspiron 15-3573 with Windows 10 and now everyday I am exceeding
    the WiFi limits. What can I disable to limit my usage? A list would be nice. Thanks folks.

  5. Event logs are spending resources

    This is more a comment as it is a "question". I was able to find out that Windows 10 had been trying to access the card reader "disk drives" quite a while and when it failed it was writing to event logs all the time, constantly. The events were StorDiag
    Operational and Ntfs Operational. The way to "solve" it was disable those event logs, so at least they are not writing on hard disk all the time. Also, third event was Microsoft Windows AppXDeploymentServer Operational with two errors (repeating forever):

    The following packages will be installed: . The following packages will be removed:

    Determining packages to be installed during logon for user: (lots of numbers, not shown here)

    I think it's good to tell about errors, but it's not good when writing log files is becoming a performance issue for the hard disk. At least there should be some kind of limit to logs written for the same event, if it's happening really fast and all the
    time.

    Enabling event viewer log remotely or over GPO

    I am working on a project which requires me to enable one Event Log in the event viewer on Windows 10. When I did that manually everything works just fine. I cannot find a way to do that for multiple computers in the OU or the entire domain. I need to
    enable the following log Application and Services\Microsoft-Windows-DriverFrameworks-UserMode-Operational in order to detect USB drive insertion. This log is disabled by default in Windows 10. Is there a way to enable it on multiple computers or do I need
    to do that manually on every computer.
