TrueNAS allows setting data or object quotas for user accounts and groups cached on or connected to the system. You can use the quota settings on the Add Dataset or Edit Dataset configuration screens in the Advanced Options settings to set up alarms and set aside more space in a dataset. See Adding and Managing Datasets for more information.
To manage the dataset overall capacity, use Edit on the Dataset Space Management widget to open the Capacity Settings screen.
To view and edit user quotas, go to Datasets and click Manage User Quotas on the Dataset Space Management widget to open the User Quotas screen.
