Why compress/delete the files? Just lower the hard and soft limit if the 
client are using to much space.... But I can't see why this is a 
problem. If the client has 10 GB, what its used for, should not 
matter.... and if you gives the clients more space than you actually 
have, that could be a very nasty problem....
