So, in edquota manual page it was written

   Users are permitted to exceed their soft limits for a grace period
   that may be specified per filesystem.  Once the grace period has
   expired, the soft limit is enforced as a hard limit.

What does this mean? is it mean for example if the soft is 10g and hard is 12g and user save 11g data after grace period is it mean that now the limit is 11g not 12g or 10g is the new soft limit?

and is it okay to turn of soft limit?
