Full Quota

Here are some ideas to reduce your disk space if you are close to your file quota.

Firefox Cache

One of the things that will take up a lot of disk space is your Firefox cache. Often, your Firefox settings, including cache files, are stored on your U: drive. To stop Firefox from using disk space for cache:

  • In Firefox, go to Edit, Preferences, click on the Advanced tab, and then select Network tab. Under "Offline Storage" put 0 for MB space for cache.

Other considerations:

  • Remember that engineering accounts are for academic purposes. It is not for MP3 files, movies, humor programs, etc. Items of this kind can be stored on a flash drive if you need to retain them.

How do I increase my quota?

  • For Students:
    Each student is allocated 15 GB of disk space. Students who need more space should have their professor contact ENS and state the reasoning for more disk space. ENS will inform both the student and the professor when and if the disk space is increased.
  • For Faculty/Staff:
    Faculty/Staff are allocated 25 GB of disk space. If you need additional space, the charges are listed on the Project File Space page.
    To rent disk space, please send an email to ENS with the amount of disk space required, the duration for which it is required and the account number to which it can be charged.
