> quota Disk quotas for user: Filesystem blocks quota limit grace files quota limit grace /dev/sdc1 429 10000 11000 36 0 0 /dev/sdd1 3 10000 11000 3 0 0This shows the user as having 429k used in 36 files on the "home" filesystem. This user has a quota of 10,000k. If they go over that limit they can write up to 11000k. If they create over 10megs of files, and under 11megs of files, a warning message is generated. If they try to create more then 11megs of files in their directory, then the last file used to go over the 11meg limit will be truncated, and an error message issued.
When the user is inbetween the "quota" and the "limit" they have 1 week by default to remove the files before the machine will not allow them to stay in this "grace period".
If you are looking to store a large ammount of files for a short period of time, you may use "/usr/tmp" to do so. The easiest way is to create a directory in "/usr/tmp" and store all your files there.
