    Limit size of samba folder

    I have basic samba share set up with a suse 10 box. I would like to set a limit of 20 GB on the folder. This is my smb.conf file-

    workgroup = MSHOME
    server string = Samba
    security = SHARE

    writeable = yes
    public = yes
    path = /smb/share

    You can use the filesystem quota support to do this - it can limit disk use per user. You'll probably need to search here or through google for linux quota config examples, but it's a pretty well discussed topic.
