I am allotted 5 GB of storage and used less than that, but I receive messages about being over quota!
We allocate storage to your RCE account in two different ways:
Home directory - By default, each RCE account is allotted a certain amount of storage in the home directory. This storage should be sufficient for general-purpose use (email, web browsing, document editing).
Project shares - If you require storage above and beyond the initial home directory allocation, or if you need to share your files with other RCE users, we create a project share and grant you access to it. Your project share is accessible via
~/shared_space/<share name>; while it may appear to be part of your home directory, it has its own quota, which will be significantly larger than your home directory's quota. Thus, if you have large files (data sets, job output, etc.) that are too big for your home directory, make sure that they are stored in the appropriate project share under
To check your storage utilization, please see "How do I check my RCE disk quota?"
