       setquota  is  a command line quota editor.  The filesystem, user/group
       name and new quotas for this filesystem can be specified on  the  com-

       -F quotaformat
              Perform setting for specified format (ie. don't perform  format
              autodetection).   Possible  format names are: vfsold (version 1
              quota), vfsv0 (version 2 quota),  rpc  (quota  over  NFS),  xfs
              (quota on XFS filesystem)

              for the named user or group.

       -t     Set grace times for users/groups. Times block-grace and  inode-
              grace are specified in seconds.

       -T     Alter   times  for  individual  user/group  when  softlimit  is
              enforced. Times block-grace and inode-grace  are  specified  in
              seconds or can be string 'unset'.

       -a     Go  through all filesystems with quota in /etc/mtab and perform

       To disable a quota, set the coresponding parameter  to  0.  To  change
