Departmental Shared K: Drives will be limited to a quota of 500MB. Help Desk agents will NOT have a way of determining how much quota has been used in the shared departmental folder, although a Windows administrator can determine this information for us. If a user has problems saving or retrieving files from a shared departmental folder, then the quota has likely been exceeded. 

Faculty/Staff J: Drives will be limited to a quota of 10GB in their personal network folder (J: drive). Once the quota is exceeded, the user will experience problems accessing Outlook Personal Folders and/or Outlook Personal Address Book stored on the J: drive, as well as problems saving and retrieving files from this folder.

Student Drives will be limited to a quota of 160MB in their person network folder (J: drive). Once the quota is exceeded, the user will experience problems saving and retrieving files from this folder. The WWW folder (personal web folder) within the student's network folder will have an additional 100MB storage capacity.

Student MavMail comes with 25GB of storage. Get more info at http://www.uta.edu/oit/email/.

The Faculty/Staff Exchange E-Mail quota is now 2GB.  E-mail is an integral part of the way we communicate, both within the University and to our many external constituents.  Thus, demand on the capacity of our electronic mailboxes has increased exponentially.  In order to address this increased need, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) is pleased to announce the implementation of significant upgrades to the University’s e-mail services over the next several months.  It is not possible for OIT to give any quota increases to any mailboxes with the current space available. There are several ways you can manage your mailbox to avoid exceeding your quota.  Click here for quota management tips and guidelines.

Omega/Gamma Home Directory Quota - A default disk quota of 100MB is set for all student and faculty/staff accounts. Once this disk quota is exceeded, the user will be unable to write any more information to the disk. Users should consider compressing large files using the 'gzip' or 'compress' commands, delete unnecessary files, transfer files to other systems, or store them offline (for example on a CD-R, or DVD-R disk). Users may determine how much disk space they are using by issuing the 'quota' command.
