Hi, you could run 'samba-tool testparm -v --suppress-prompt | grep 
[v]fs' , this will show any default vfs options
or you could run 'man smb.conf' and find the 'vfs objects' part, this 
will tell you that the default is 'vfs objects =', so if you haven't 
added any, you aren't using any.

The user quota in linux is displayed correctly, but with samba in Windows you see the double size. I've found a lot of people who have the same problem, but no solution for this issue.
