Departmental File Share Storage Quotas

  1. Request an increase in shared drive storage quota

    • Notifications are sent to ITAdmin Reps when their departmental drive on the Windows File Service has reached a high percentage (normally around 90%) of its storage limit  (quota). If you have received one of these notifications, you can either remove unneeded files from the shared file storage or have users remove files from their home drive, or you can request additional space:

  2. Departmental File Share Permission Changes

    • ITS’ Windows File Service best practice allows for creating explicit permissions on any directory up to two layers from the root of the departmental file share. This guideline is in place to avoid situations where nested folder permissions cause access issues due to explicit permissions applied too deep within the departmental file share. For example:


      In this example, any directory created within Layer2, e.g. Layer3, must inherit the permissions from Layer2 and cannot have explicit permissions applied that are different from the permissions on Layer2. Directories created within Layer1, next to Layer2, can still have explicit permissions applied. So using this example, if Layer3 required explicit permissions, it would need to be moved from under Layer2 and placed within Layer1
