[Users] slow disc quota checks

we have a VE with samba and about 300 users with 2nd level of quota. 
Unfortunately we are having power problems, and the container does not 
shutdown well, so container have to do a quota check on startup. Disk 
space is about 1 Terabyte, so quota check takes about 1 hour to finish, 
and of course users are without service all of this time.

Does it have sense the check spends so much time?
We know that the quota check is necessary because quota file is 
inconsistent, but is there any way to speed up the quota check?

Thanks for your help.
