Windows 7: Can't change quota settings on attached Network Drive......

Can't change quota settings on attached Network Drive......

Hey all, Have an odd problem/issue and was looking for help. I am using a Windows 7, 64bit machine with an attached network drive I use for streaming my media. The manufacturer is Seagate (2TB) STAM2000. So, I have two folders in this drive:

TV Shows


combined there is just 500gb. So, the Seagate NAS tells me the drive is full. I right click on the drive and chose properties. I then chose Quota Settings. Here it says: To change these settings click Quota settings. I do this anf nothing happens. It looks as if this option is to prevent one user from filling the drive. I also connected a WD NAS and the same option appears. So, is this a Windows 7 thing? I posted over at the Seagate forum as well. I own both the NAS and Windows 7 PC. How can I change this quota settings? Hopefully this all makes sense.

Thank you

On the assumption the NAS appears as a drive letter, what size and usage is it showing when you go into manage computer, i.e. start, right click on my computer, manage, disk management..... ?
