    I'm setting up a new server with WHM, and I'm at the point of choosing whether to use file system quotas.

    This server will only have 1 account on it: mine, and I plan to let it use as much /home/ storage as it needs. Based on this, is there any advantage / disadvantage to setting up file quotas?

    Hello :)

    The advantage to enabling file system quotas is that it will allow you to track how much disk space usage the account uses. However, with just one account, it's not absolutely necessary. It would also be useful if you ever change your mind and decide to have multiple accounts.

    Thank you.
