I connect to a share on a windows server and I have a quota of unknown size. All the tools I have seen are reporting the disk size/disk free space, not the quota size for myself.

The only way I can figure out my quotas is to keep writing junk until I reach the quota. There must be a better way than this?

My PC is windows XP and the servers are mainly 2003server.

If you map the share as a network drive it will show you the limit and the amount used.

Thats not WinXP. In winxp it just shows the size of the disks on the server, not of your quota space. – myforwik Mar 4 '10 at 3:17
I realize the screenshot isn't. Except here my xp machine shows the quota. – MrStatic Mar 4 '10 at 4:25
Mr static > Are you connecting to a 2008 Server? 2003 server does quota by the whole drive (ie on the whole of the D: for example, no matter how many folders/shares you have access to), rather than by folder. – Tubs Jul 27 '12 at 11:37
