AFS Disk Quota for Users Increased to 200MB

Over the past few months, Stanford's main AFS cell was moved onto bigger and better disks, which allowed ITSS to increase the default size of user volumes from 100 to 200 MB. AFS (short for Andrew File System) is an online disk storage system employed by universities, research institutions, and similar groups around the world for organizing and maintaining computer data. Stanford students, faculty, and staff get disk space in AFS for storing web pages, text files, images, computer programs, email, and other forms of online information.

Every full-service SUNet ID comes with an AFS account. Just log into a Sweet Hall cluster machine or use the AFS clients in PC or MacLeland. For more information about AFS, take a look at:
