NAME

       convertquota - convert quota from old file format to new one

SYNOPSIS

       convertquota [ -ug ] -e filesystem

       convertquota [ -ug ] -f oldformat,newformat 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, --user
              convert user quota file. This is the default.

       -g, --group
              convert group quota file.

       -f, --convert-format oldformat,newformat
              convert quota file from oldformat to newformat.

       -e, --convert-endian
              convert vfsv0 file format from big endian to little endian  (old
              kernels had a bug and did not store quota files in little endian
              format).

       -V, --version
              print version information.

FILES

       aquota.user         new user quota file

       aquota.group        new group quota file
