Exclamation UFS folder size quota


Good Day,,

can I set a quota for a UFS folder without specializing a disk partition for it ?

No, unless you can specialize a dedicated user account to own all files in that directory as UFS quotas are per user, not per directory.

ZFS is much more flexible so if you can migrate to ZFS, you'll have more choices.
