I'm installing a program on my Linux server and it stores data locally for a week. However, there is an error that can occur sometimes that will keep it from deleting the data.
To safeguard against this when I installed it on a Unix server I just create a new filesystem of the specified size. However, the filesystem on my linux server was created to have the full partition. Is there some way to set the maximum size for a directory?
Additionally if these was free space in the partition, would it be better to create a new filesystem, or use the above restrictions.
