CONVERTQUOTA(8)                                                CONVERTQUOTA(8)




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.

       -f     convert from old file format to new one. This is the default.
