    Title should have been "Quota & user backup question" :eek:

    I've got a question about specifics on quotas.

    Here's the situation: I've a user that uses about 13GB of diskspace and has a quota of 25GB. When he runs a backup it pushes him up to about 23GB and the ownership of the backup file is set to root.wheel and they subsequently can't download it.

    The observation: When the quota rises above 80%(?) the backup ownership changes to root.

    Question: Is there a work around besides my involvement changing the ownership & the quota (temporarily) or changing their quota permanently?
