Yes. I have been on both sides of disk / file system quota,
occasionally at the same time.
I remember them being applied when I was in school.
I applied them to mail servers I administered (50 MB quota).
I think I even used a combination of soft (50 MB) and hard (100 MB)
quotas. I really liked the soft/hard pair because someone could go over
their quota for up to 7 days (?) until they hit the hard quota. This
gave some buffer for busy weekends and vacation time.
I also applied a quota to myself (and the other admins) specifically so
that we couldn't accidentally fill the file system and DoS our users. I
think I gave us a 1 or 2 GB quota. I do remember raising it once or
twice for specific things. It did save our collected back sides
multiple times too.
