Can someone please tell me how to translate megs into blocks? I am enabling quota on my system and the last step is figuring out how many blocks 45 megs is and how many blocks 50 megs is so I can limit my users to said amount of drive space. thank you very much !

1 block = 1024 bytes = 1 Kbyte (in Linux!)

blocks = Megabytes*1024

Examples:

45Mbytes*1024= 46080 blocks
50Mbytes*1024= 51200 blocks
