I am using the "get quota command" option of smb.conf but I have some

must report different quota limits depending for which share is it being 
asked. But Samba always calls this script with "." as first parameter, so I

- Wouldn't it be better to report to the clients the hard quota limit 
instead of the soft limit? This can cause that Windows doesn't upload the 
profile at logoff when the used space is over the soft limit, when actually 
it could be uploaded because the hard limit hasn't been
exceeded. (This is why I use get quota command, to report a false soft quota
