#2395 closed Feature request (duplicate)

Max uploadsize or max foldersize

When I use Filezilla server, I miss the feature that
restricts people to upload files greater then a certain
amount. I miss this because I don't want people to use
up all the harddisk space, so an even better solution
would be to set a maximum size for the folder so people
can't put more on the harddisk then the specified size.

Good Luck with the project,

I am completely agree with B Blok. But I do know a way to
let people have a maximum size for the folder, but it is
quite troublesome and very expensive. I don't know anything
about coding the Filezilla server but from the facts I am
facing now, I think this feature is very hard to be done.
But I'd love to have this feature. Good luck.

Best regards,


NB: to set a maximum size of a folder, you have to share the
root of the drive (e.g. F:\). The limit is set by the
partition. And by creating virtual drives, you can do that,
but it is limited (considering the last drive would be Z:
and after that you can't add anymore, or can you?).

It's planned for a future version, though I can't give any
ETA yet.
