Try directory quotas on the backend storage file system. 

With XFS 

GlusterFS has a very easy way to implement simple size quota on any directory:

Hello Everyone, 
I tried posting this on the owncloud support forums, but @RealRancor advised me to use this list. You can see my question on the forums https://forum.owncloud.org/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=32993 . 

I am still learning about owncloud and its amazing apps capability, so please elaborate your answers if you can. I have a simple requirement. Lets say I start a owncloud webserver on a machine. I ask users to upload their pictures and videos on lets say swim club trips. I want to be able to build an app with a functionality that restricts the users with two folders images and videos to file size limits 100 MB and 500 MB respectively. Or there a better way without using app framework ? I know there is a way to set the global owncloud upload limit, I also know that there is a place where user skeleton or default files can be created. 

I am not looking for a spoon-fed answer, just general directions where I can go and look, so I am able to achieve the said functionality of different upload restrictions for different directories at the user/ client level. 

Let me know your thoughts about this. 

I am reading this documentation, and understanding it, but can you sketch roughly how would you / or any one with knowledge of owncloud and apps would go about building such an application. Just some starting pointers please, since I don't have much prior experience with web development.
