How much disk space can I use?


Default Quota

Most users in the College are given 2GB of disk space with their account. If you are a student you can request an increase with written (email) permission from your instructor. For projects related to a class, we can also create 'scratch' space. For more information please contact help@engineering.ucsb.edu.

Ideally, it is best to clean up your account, finding what is no longer necessary on your account.  Checking the Downloads, Desktop, or Documents folders for old data and removing them can free up space for projects, especially things dated 3 or more months old.

Checking Your Current Quota and Usage

To learn more about how to check your current usage information you can use the information provided in Why can't I login graphically? : Going over quota.
