Folder size restriction
I have a samba server running in my workplace which has about 50 users. Each user has a folder where they can store personal files, and I was wondering if anyone knows how to set each folder so that it can hold no more than 2048 MB of data.
What you want to do is setup quotas. It is added to the /etc/fstab so it works on a specific partition. So if you have a partition like /dev/hda* is mounted as /home then you can apply quotas to the /dev/hda* which is /home. But if /home is part of the / partition then it will not work this way. I hope you understand this.
Now a way around this is create a partition like /samba. Then add to fstab with quota setup. Now create a directroy of each user there and that they have ownership to thier directory. Then create a softlink to that partition to thier home directory. ' ln -s /samba/user1 /home/user1/samba '.
So look up quota here, at www.linuxquestions.com, and at google and learn about it.
Check out this post. Check the links in the second post on a virtual quota partition. Never tried but looked pretty good way without repartition.
