    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Read this tutorial: Linux File System Quotas

    It may be that if you add the flash drive to /etc/fstab, you may be able to enable quotas on it. However, if it is auto-mounted, I think you are SOL.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
