Post restricting folder size limit to 50 gb


a server have a mount point disk which contains multiple folders we want to restrict the folder size to 100 gb so more than 100 gb data cannot be stored in it . Folder 2 space limit 50 GB . same application user is accessing these folders so we cannot have a quota per user .

If the drive is already in use, you could have these folders as mounted filesystem files.

Create each as a file using dd, I forget the exact command, but it is something like,
dd if=/dev/zero of=filename bs=1M count=?
then create a filesystem within it, mount & use it.

It would be easier to partition the drive up first,if that is possible.
