     quotarestore - restore dumped quota information to a file system volume

     quotarestore [-d] file-system [dump-file]

     The quotarestore program restores dumped quota information to a file
     system.  The file dump-file should be in the format produced with
     quotadump(8).  The quotas, expiration times, and configured grace times
     listed in the dump file are loaded into the named file system.  The
     file-system argument should be a file or directory on the (mounted) file
     system, not a device special file.

     If the -d option is given, quota entries on the file system that are not
     mentioned in the dump file will be deleted.  Otherwise, they are left

     If the dump-file is not specified, standard input is used.
