NAME
       convertquota - convert quota from old file format to new one

SYNOPSIS
       convertquota [ -ug ] [ -e | -f ] filesystem

DESCRIPTION
       convertquota  converts  old  quota  files quota.user and quota.group to
       files aquota.user and aquota.group in  new  format  currently  used  by
       2.4.0-ac? and newer or by SuSE or Red Hat Linux 2.4 kernels on filesys-
       tem.

       New file format allows using quotas for 32-bit  uids  /	gids,  setting
       quotas for root, accounting used space in bytes (and so allowing use of
       quotas in ReiserFS) and it is also architecture independent. This  for-
       mat  introduces	Radix  Tree (a simple form of tree structure) to quota
       file.

OPTIONS
       -u     convert user quota file. This is the default.

       -g     convert group quota file.

       -f     convert from old file format to new one. This is the default.

       -e     convert new file format from big endian to little endian.

       -V     print version information.

FILES
       aquota.user	   new user quota file

       aquota.group	   new group quota file
