Student accounts have a disk quota based on the classes they have taken (e.g., if you take graphics, your disk quota goes up). To see your current quota, run the quota command. We have a three-tiered quota system as follows:
Tier I (40MB): CS 21, 22, 23, 25, 37, 41, 46 Tier II (70MB): CS 35, 43, 44, 45, 63, 75, 85, 91, 93 Tier III (100MB): CS 27, 40, 65, 67, 81, 97
If you need temporary storage space, please make use of the /scratch and /local directories.
If you've cleaned up your files and still need more disk space in your home directory, send an email to local-staff and we'll raise your quota.
