    I have a file server that houses all users information, files, etc. I just
    upgraded the hard drives and thought I had backed up quota settings, but in
    fact only backed up 1 users settings.

    Anyway, all users files have already been restored and now I need to go back
    in and setup the quota again. The problem I am having is that when I setup
    the quota for Mark, it will show him as using 0Mb when in fact, his files
    (which he is the owner of) actually take up 50Mb.

    Now I read that disk quota only applies to files being added after the quota
    has been setup. Is there any workaround to get the quota to recognize the
    files that were already there before I setup the quotas?

    Thanks alot
