How to get more space as a user?


hi, we have a small cluster of linux machine and we use samba for the file system. After I get a account, I find I can only use limited space on the hard drive. I can not write even it still have space. Does linux have limitation on the space allowcated to each user? how can I increase the space I can use?

Thanks. I am new to here and need you help.

Try the quota command on the server to see if file system quotas are in affect.

Hi, can you tell me how to check that? I am totally new here.

I use df to check the useage of the disk.

Use df -ih to check if sufficient inodes are left. df -h for blocks.
But I don't think this is the problem.
What filesystem are you mounting via Samba?

Thanks. I wanna know if the system has something to limit the usage of harddrive for every user. And How can I change that?

"Fedora Core" is the name of your Linux distribution ("distro").
It has nothing to with the filesystem type: NTFS, FAT, ext2, ext3, reiserfs,...

Can any of the other users still write files via Samba? Or is the disk "full" for all users?
