Edit quotas for a user or group. By default it operates on all filesystems with quotas. Quota information is stored permanently in the quota.user and files in the root of the filesystem. More information:

  • Edit quota of the current user:

edquota --user $(whoami)

  • Edit quota of a specific user:

sudo edquota --user {{username}}

  • Edit quota for a group:

sudo edquota --group {{group}}

  • Restrict operations to a given filesystem (by default edquota operates on all filesystems with quotas):

sudo edquota --file-system {{filesystem}}

  • Edit the default grace period:

sudo edquota -t

  • Duplicate a quota to other users:

sudo edquota -p {{reference_user}} {{destination_user1}} {{destination_user2}}
