Your quota refers to how much storage one has on our servers. This includes anything saved while working in the CADE Lab (Linux), the MGK Mac Lab (macOS) or any of the Windows labs. The quota applies to anything within /home (ie, /home/username, as well as course directories, websites, SVN, etc.). Most machines have a ‘scratch disk’, or free space, that does NOT apply towards your quota. On the Linux machines,
use /var/tmp use /scratch/tmp (be sure to create a folder for yourself, to help you find your files later).
