for their help.

Finally, it was a silly problem. I had tried quotacheck, as some of you
suggested. But it was simpler: the user had some files in a directory
different from his $HOME, as Thomas Anders pointed, but he didn't
remember it.

Thanks again for your help.


My originally question:

> Hello everyone,

> Filesystem usage quota limit timeleft files quota limit
> timeleft
> /export/home2
> 55136 50000 53000 6.8 days 317 0 0

> Any idea how to solve it?
> Thanks in advanced.
