Your Physics account comes with several GB of storage in your unix home directory. The default home directory quota is 10GB. You can check your storage usage and quota in MyPhys.
We can also set up group or project directories for shared access. Please refer to our page on unix file storage.
Most people with a Physics account can connect to their Physics home directory from Windows or Mac computers. For steps on how to connect to your unix storage, see How to map a network drive in Windows.
Your Physics Windows Active Directory (AD) account also comes with storage space on our Windows file server. At present, this is not displayed in MyPhys.
There are a number of ways you can access your Active Directory files from a non-member computer (a “non-member” computer is one which isn't part of our Active Directory configuration, such a laptop you manage yourself at home or elsewhere).
For research groups which need shared network storage, we offer a shared research RAID facility, where you may “buy in” to obtain dedicated space. The storage is allocated in chunks of 1 or 2TB.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about this option.
