Quotas on UFS are set at either the user- or the group-ID level, not on directories themselves. So you could create a group named "legal", then "chgrp -R legal /mnt/docs/legal", and run "edquota -g legal" to set a 50GB quota on files in the "legal" group. http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/handbook/quotas.html describes how to set up the system to enable quotas. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
