I have a network that recently started incorrectly reporting free space for Mapped Drives.
The network consists of: Server running Win SBS 2003 (as a workgroup); 1 XP Pro and 4 Win 2000 workstations.
None of the workstations are reporting the free drive space correctly, but the the W2K units are reporting that space is available and allowing read/writes; the XP box is reporting no free space available for the same mapped drives.
Steps attempted to resolve: re-mapped the drives, run scandisk on all units, and defragged.
No recent AV/FW upgrades, other than defs; already ran through standard connectivity tests: cabling, NIC, router, drivers, etc., to include temp disable of AV/FW. Also ran scandisk on the host drives.
But, it turned out that it was quota related, after all. For grins-n-giggles, I went ahead and enabled/applied quotas on Svr and rebooted. Mapping was back up, so I disabled, applied, and rebooted...now good to go!
Who'd a thought? Guess its another of those nifty MS features! Will keep an eye on it, just in case.
