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.
OPTIONS -u convert user quota file. This is the default.
-g convert group quota file.
-f convert from old file format to new one. This is the default.
-e convert new file format from big endian to little endian.
-V print version information.
FILES aquota.user new user quota file
aquota.group new group quota file
