Quotas and locks are two methods of controlling access to site collections. By employing the use of locks, site administrators can manually prevent user access.
Quotas are used to prevent users from adding content to a site collection or provide e-mail warning notification to the site collection administrator when specified limits on disk space are passed.
It is also possible to create and edit site quota templates that you can use during site creation
To configure site quotas, follow these steps:
1. From the Application Management page of the Central Administration site, click Configure quotas and locks under the Site Collections section.
2. Choose the site collection to configure from the drop-down list in the Site Collection section.
