NAME

convertquota - convert quota from old file format to new one

SYNOPSIS

convertquota [ -ug ] [ -e | -f ] filesystem

DESCRIPTION

convertquota converts old quota files quota.user and quota.group to files aquota.user and aquota.group in new format currently used by 2.4.0-ac? and newer or by SuSE or Red Hat Linux 2.4 kernels on filesys- tem. New file format allows using quotas for 32-bit uids / gids, setting quotas for root, accounting used space in bytes (and so allowing use of quotas in ReiserFS) and it is also architecture independent. This for- mat introduces Radix Tree (a simple form of tree structure) to quota file.
