Many Syncplify.me Server! administrators often notice that our software's virtual file systems (VFS) do have two distinct quota configurations:
- soft quota
- hard quota
Both values are expressed in KiloBytes.
The main difference is this:
- when the soft quota is broken by an ongoing upload, such upload will be allowed to finish, and further/additional file uploads will be denied
- when the hard quota is broken by an ongoing upload, such upload is immediately interrupted, and further/additional file uploads will be denied
If both soft and hard quotas are set to 0 (zero) then the software will not enforce any quota. This is basically equivalent to disabling all quota checks and controls.
But if even just one of these values is greater than 0 (zero), then both are enforced. So, you can never have one quota set to 0 and the other one set to a value greater than 0, because that would basically prevent all uploads.
