*Disk Quota :
For each user you can have different limit disk spaces : in My Computer > Right click on Drive you want to enable Disk Quota> Properties > Quota :

Check on Enable Disk Quota Management
If you don't check Deny disk space to users exceeding quota limit , there will be only a warning for user, NOT a Denial when user reach disk space quota limit.

Specify user by click on Quota Entries  ...  > New Quota Entry . And add user to apply disk quota to him .

You can also exclude some files that user are allowed to copy to C:/Folder by click on Create... and choose file to exclude . Remeber create a file group name

For example :
a) You don't want  user to copy a .EXE files to your Folder, but user can copy a file name GoodFile.EXE , so you type in Files to exclude : GoodFile.Exe
b) You want to prohibit user from copying a file have a extension .XXX , so you type in Files to include : ".XXX" - without quotation marks .
