If any inconsistencies are detected, both the quota file and the current system copy of the incorrect quotas are updated (the latter only occurs if an active filesystem is checked). By default both user and group quotas are checked. .Pp Available options: .Bl -tag -width Ds .It Fl a If the .Fl a flag is supplied in place of any filesystem names, .Nm quotacheck will check all the filesystems indicated in .Pa /etc/fstab to be read-write with disk quotas. By default only the types of quotas listed in .Pa /etc/fstab are checked. .It Fl g Only group quotas listed in .Pa /etc/fstab are to be checked. .It Fl u Only user quotas listed in .Pa /etc/fstab are to be checked. .It Fl v .Nm quotacheck reports discrepancies between the calculated and recorded disk quotas. .El .Pp Specifying both .Fl g and .Fl u is equivalent to the default. Parallel passes are run on the filesystems required, using the pass numbers in .Pa /etc/fstab in an identical fashion to .Xr fsck 8 . .Pp Normally .Nm quotacheck operates silently. .Pp .Nm Quotacheck expects each filesystem to be checked to have a quota files named .Pa quota.user and .Pa quota.group which are located at the root of the associated file system. These defaults may be overridden in .Pa /etc/fstab . If a file is not present, .Nm quotacheck will create it. .Pp .Nm Quotacheck is normally run at boot time from the .Pa /etc/rc.local file, see .Xr rc 8 , before enabling disk quotas with .Xr quotaon 8 . .Pp .Nm Quotacheck accesses the raw device in calculating the actual disk usage for each user. Thus, the filesystems checked should be quiescent while .Nm quotacheck is running. .Sh FILES .Bl -tag -width quota.group -compact .It Pa quota.user at the filesystem root with user quotas .It Pa quota.group at the filesystem root with group quotas .It Pa /etc/fstab default filesystems .El .Sh SEE ALSO .Xr quota 1 , .Xr quotactl 2 , .Xr fstab 5 , .Xr edquota 8 , .Xr fsck 8 , .Xr quotaon 8 , .Xr repquota 8 .Sh HISTORY The .Nm command appeared in .Bx 4.2 .
