Disk Space

The College of Engineering network provides disk space for users personal, group or public files. These files may be accessed via a mapped drive letter on campus, or via SCP or FTP from outside of Engineering or off campus. Details of accessing your files from outside of Engineering is contained in the Off Campus section of this Helpdesk.

It is important to understand that most drive space is shared with many other users. For example, one of the undergraduate disks is 50 gigabytes, but is shared by 2000 users. There is currently no restriction on the amount of space for an individual user. When the other users use too much space, you may see an "out of disk space" message when you are using a small amount of disk space. Please contact admin@eng.auburn.edu when you have questions about disk space.
