CS Server Disk Space Information

You do have a disk quota of approximately 500 MB. You can find out how much disk space you are using by logging into the CS Server (via ssh) and issuing the command quota.

You should do your part to keep your disk usage in check. If you are doing your development under Linux, you should be careful to eliminate core files and all .o files when you are done with a project. Many find it handy to include an appropriate entry in their Makefile to help with this task.

If you were in a CS course in a previous semester that had a turn-In folder or directory (either Windows or Linux), you may want to go into that folder and delete any files in it. Those files are charged against your disk quota. Once you have deleted the files in the folder, you can delete the folder itself. Be careful, though, removing the turnIn folder first will complicate removing the files in the folder. They will still exist and are still charged against your disk quota.

If you have a project that is particularly large or a need for additional disk space, please contact Marty Wolf. Disk space is available for special projects.
