Maximum Share size + Samba

Hi All,

I'm using Samba 3.0.2 and created a domain server. I made a /work/shares directory. there I made a shared directory "bart" and "test". Everything works fine.

But I want to manage the size of the shares. My harddisk is 200 GB so now is the size of bart or test 197 GB. Any idea where I can configure the maximum size of a shared directory? (Not user based).

So I want that "bart" is maximum 40 GB and "Test"15 Gb

Thank you very much,

Bart Hendrix

If I understand your question correctly, are you asking if there is a limit to the size of a share that samba can support? The answer is no, although there are restrictions to individual file size limits (not sure what it is in your distro, but in suse it is a 64-bit limit).

Yes, I know this is in response to a super old thread, but as I googled for answers to day I pulled this up. I thought since I had an answer I would respond for anyone else looking for an answer in the future.
