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
       filesystem.

       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
       format 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.
