There's no way to set the max size of the Windows folder. All you can do is uninstall Windows components you don't use or disable System Restore (or reduce the max size used for system restore).

no its not due to space crunch, actually on server i wanna allocate a folder to a specific project requirement....The folder size should not exceed the size which eats up my server hard disk, that folder will be accessed by different project people.

How about creating a user account on the server and then creating a share within the user's account, then giving team members access to the share...then enable disk quota management and adding just that user account with a limit?

thanks for reply, However currently we are following this only but now our reqm is to limit size of folder, but not on the basis of user disk quota management but we want in general to limit the size. I doubt whether its possible in windows.
bye
