This extension adds the ability to define and apply a default quota on My Files folder when a new user is created.

Alfresco's default quota is applied to every content uploaded by a user. This extension applies quota only to personal space (user home folder).

The default quota value is set in file and must be defined in bytes.

The plugin is licensed under the LGPL v3.0. The current version is compatible with 5.0.

It has been developed based on alfresco-folder-quota

On addition, during Alfresco Global Virtual Hack-a-thon 2015, folder quota setting has been included in Share interface. So every folder can be controlled by a quota (even Sites folders).
