Each MSI user receives a home directory when their account is created.
Each MSI lab and HPC account has a home directory within its respective group's shared space. Group shared home-directory quota increases are available to a group upon request, by having the PI or group admin email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that these requests are subject to approval.
Snapshots are enabled for home directories on all systems. A read-only version of a deleted or corrupted file may be available in ~/.snapshot for several days to a week, and a user may copy it back into the write-enabled home directory space.
The table below details the current quota for the group shared home directory, the existence of scratch space at run time, and backup options for files
|Labs||150 GB (see above)||central scratch||snapshots & tape|
|Itasca||150 GB (see above)||local scratch||snapshots & tape|
Note: The group shared directory space is one and the same throughout all the systems.
