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 1 TB. You can exceed this limit up to 1.1 TB for a short time but if you exceed 1 TB 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 5 TB but may be increased up to 5 TB. You can exceed this limit up to 5.5 TB for a short time but if you exceed 5 TB for more than one week your access will lock-up.
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.
