    Since a quota applies to a filesystem you *could* mount the directory
    concerned as a separate filesystem and apply the quota to that; there is
    however no method of applying a quota to any old directory you wish.

    (And using the word "folder" round here when you mean "directory" will
    get you some interesting comments)

    On Solaris, quotas can only be set on entire filesystems.

    (DG/UX, by contrast, could only set quotas on an alternate type of
    directory called a control-point directory [possibly a feature they
    brought over from their AOS/VS operating system; I haven't seen any
    other Unix flavor that has that feature])

    Hi,

    Yes, it is
    just create a user and associate the folder as his home directory
    define a quota for the user's home directory and it's done

    What if you want to have multiple users who write to the directory
    and still see the quota enforced? What if you want to have multiple
    directories with different quotas, all accessible by the same user?
