Quota

You can enable quotas (in MB or GB) for users and user groups to help manage storage space. When quotas are enabled, QuTS hero prevents users from saving data to the NAS after the quota is reached. By default, quotas are not enabled for users.

QuTS hero provides three types of quota settings.
