i #edquota -u to a user here but my problem IS that i made the quota (soft) in each of blocks and inodes ...as the used space in the /home/user (i wanted to see what'll happend ) i thought that if i just copied any more files it should stop me or popup any message ..talking about my /home/user limit ..........U see what i mean ???...
