Unix quotas are implemented as a soft quota and a hard quota. The
hard quota is generally larger than the soft quota.
While the user is over the soft limit, he can create files (up to
the hard limit). Once a user exceeds the soft quota, he has 1
week before the soft limits are treated as hard limits (and he
will be unable to create a file).
