I assumed there should be an easy way to limit the size of a shared folder but I can't seem to find it? Is there some easy way to do it, preferably without 3rd party software?

I don't think there is a way to do this. You can have a workaround for this by creating a virtual drive of that size, or by creating user profile that has a quota.

If you are using windows server, here is a link for how to do it in that, but it is not possible in windows 7.

@Psycogeek, this is a user quota, as mentioned above. It does not work on a folder level. – soandos Jan 5 '12 at 10:01
