When I right-click an NTFS volume, why can't I see the Quota tab?

A. If the Quota tab isn't visible, your user account or group doesn't have the Traverse Folder/Execute File right on that NTFS volume. To resolve this problem, perform the following steps:

  1. Right-click the NTFS volume in Windows Explorer or My Computer, then select Properties from the displayed context menu.
  2. Select the Security tab.
  3. Click the Advanced button.
  4. Select the Permissions tab.
  5. Select the entry that applies to your user account or group, then click Edit.
  6. Under the "Apply onto" section, ensure the "This folder, subfolders and files" check box is selected.
  7. Select the Allow check box for Traverse Folder/Execute File permissions, then click OK.
  8. Click OK to close all dialog boxes.

The Quota tab will now be available when you right-click the NTFS volume.
