    I'm getting this :

    edquota: Can't open quotafile /drive2/aquota.user: Read-only file system
    Resetting quota for roy to 400 Meg....Done


    do I need to change the permission? I'm just making it sure because I havent touch anything then it shows the error.

    Sounds as if /drive2 is not mounted as read/write but read only.
    What does your /etc/fstab show for /drive2 mount?

    this drive is just for my backup drive. I added this after like 5 months of operations.

    i did tried /scripts/fixquoatas but i keep getting permission denied. How do I correct this?
