Proxmox Error: (warning) Incorrect quota shutdown for id xxx recalculating disk usage

I came across this error today when trying to manually backup the container to create an OpenVZ container template.

It occurred, in my case, when trying to start the container VMID 600 after been playing around within it’s root folder from the host’s terminal. The following error was presented:

To fix the issue, we need to turn off the quota for the VMID and then back on again.

The output should look like below:

You then need to turn the quota back on, to ensure your container’s disks are restricted to the size you have set for it.

You should now be able to successfully start the container, error free!
