FreeBSD doesn't have a filesystem with per-directory quota support.

For a top-level mount point like /export/data7, a per-filesystem quota should do 
just fine, but if that isn't good enough for your needs, okay: so be it.  I 
guess you'll have to find another OS which fits your requirements better.
