ReadyNas User/Share Quotas

I have just purchased a ReadyNas 202.  It seems great but there is one feature I feel it is missing, which I am sure was available on older low-end Netgear NAS drives which is user/share quotas.

 

Surely this is a feature many people require and should be available even on low-end devices.  I'm sure it's available on cheap D-Link NAS drives why not Netgear?

 

Is there any chance of this being implemented in future firmware updates?

Hopefully the answer is yes.

 

I think the timing here depends on BTRFS  (quotas are problematic with CoW, and it needs to be stable on the file system level before it can be implemented in ReadyNAS).

Hello my-username,

 

I apologize this feature has been removed from the ReadyNAS OS6.

 

What's currently available is the size info of each Share under Shares on the admin page.

 

You may post suggestions and ideas at Storage Idea Exchange board 

 

Adding kudos to the ideas will help as development team will be reviewing the most kudoed post for considering it to add to the product's future functionality.

 

Regards,

This feature is already under consideration and one we would like to add. As StephenB mentioned stability is crucial. We will only add this feature when we are confident in its stability.

Share Quotas have been added in 6.4.0 Beta: https://community.netgear.com/t5/ReadyNAS-Beta-Release/ReadyNASOS-6-4-0-T112-Beta-2/m-p/975186#U9751...

You can give the beta release a try or wait for the production release. Unless you really need the feature right now, seeing you have a 200 series unit I'd be inclined to suggest you wait.
