At least that's what happens for me: i.imgur.com/xE30wKO.png May13 answered Different space quotas for different Windows users May13 comment Different space quotas for different Windows users @Uninspired, thanks. I did search before posting but did not turn up that information; guess I used sub-optimal phrases. May13 asked Different space quotas for different Windows users May4 comment How can I equate the same user on different Windows 7 machines within a home group? the only way I found to do this was to turn off homegroup sharing, leave the homegroup, and use advanced sharing properties (see here ), and then create the same accounts on all the machines with the same passwords.
