Windows File Server Resource Manager

 

According to Microsoft “File Server Resource Manager enables system administrators to understand how storage is being used and to manage the use of their storage by generating storage reports, applying quotas to volumes and folders, and screening files on the server.” You can use this tool to alert you when the volumes are running out of disk space, when users are using excessive disk space or when particular file types are being stored.
