StuFile Share Changes

Posted on: No Comments

Students, today we will be doing an upgrade to the server that houses the StuFile shares.   These are commonly referred to as the student personal share or U drive which automatically connects when you login to a Windows machine on campus.

This system will be unavailable and will not be back up until Wednesday, March 12th.   You will not lose any data during the upgrade process and everything will work the same when the system comes back online.

New Quota Enforcement
Once the upgrade is complete we will be activating our quota enforcement polices on this system.  We have always had quotas in place on these drives, but until now we have not put enforcement policies in place to ensure that they stay under the maximum size.  From now on, all StuFile shares will be limited to a generous 5GB quota.

If your StuFile share is already over the 5GB quota, you will receive a separate email with information on how these drives will be handled later today.  

What if my share reaches the quota limit in the future?
Once you attempt to add a file to your StuFile share that will put it over quota, you will receive an email indicating why you were unable to copy the file over.  You will also receive emails once your share reaches 90 and 95 percent of your allowed space so you will always know where you stand.
