Disk Quotas

You have a /home/username directory. This disk space has quotas imposed on it to prevent us running out of disk space.

The default quota for home directories is 500 GB. You can exceed this limit up to 550 GB for a short time but if you exceed 500 GB for more than one week your account will lock-up.

We are unable to increase your home directory quota. If you require more disk space, please ask the computing staff for a /data directory.

The default quota for a /data directory is 2 TB but may be increased up to 5 TB. Users requiring more than 5 TB please note that it may require some time to prepare such as resource, and it will in addition require faculty approval.
