Does anyone know how to get Mac OS 10.6 to report correct size or free space of a Windows Server 2008 R2 share that has a space quota? Mac OS 10.6.8 reports total size and free space of RAID volume, but not the size of the share on the RAID volume or the free space remaining in that quota for that share.

Thanks memadmax,
I have seen these -- I was tom888 in one of them, and forgot about that. Anyway, I was casting about to see whether anyone had come up with anything on this as it is annoying to those I work with who don't know how much space they have left and find their file saves slowing down and wonder if they're running out of room. Unfortunately, MAC OS 10.6.8 still reports full volume size and not share quota size regardless of whether it is mapped to the root or not. On the other hand, Win XP and Win7 mapped drives report quota space correctly.
