Quota Limit Exceeded

From Help Wiki


What to do if you are out of file space.

Out of Filespace?

You may have gotten a message from FSRM@orca.evergreen.edu telling you that you have reached the quota limit for your personal fileshare. These folders are very small (100MB) and should be thought of as a very small transfer station or (as some have put it) a safe deposit box. In any case, it's useful for transferring and storing smallish documents and files. If you've gotten this message, you may need to go back through your folder to see what's important to keep and what you can either remove or move someplace else.

If you would like more help cleaning up your folder, the folks at the Computer Center can help you out. You can also give them a call at 867-6227.
