I'm testing FSRM in Windows 2003 R2 as an alternative to our current quota
management software.

We currently use a software program that allows quotas to attach to an AD
group. For example, if a user wishes their quota to be increased on a share
/ folder, we just add the appropriate quota group in AD.

Is this possible using FSRM?

Hey Andrew,

FSRM is a folder level quota management program, not a user level quota
management program.

What I mean in folder level quota management program, the folder checks for
quotas limitation. However it gives no control over which user can have how
many more storage in that particular folder. You might be able to get this
effect if you use the user quota and FSRM together at the same time.
