The university automatically provides individual file storage for all admitted and registered students, including graduate students, instructors, researchers and employees on Cabinet to store their data and information.
Access to all file services requires an NSID (Network Services ID) and password.
There are several ways to access Cabinet from off campus:
Connect through PAWS using any Internet connection.
Files are stored on a server cluster that has built-in fail-safe systems and is upgraded on a monthly basis. This system helps to ensure reliable access to files 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition, files are backed up nightly and are available for retrieval for up to six weeks.
All students, instructors, researchers, and employees receive an initial disk quota of 2 Gigabytes (GB) of storage space on Cabinet.
The maximum disk quota is 20 GB. To request a quota increase, contact your local IT support staff or the ICT Help Desk (email firstname.lastname@example.org).
You can check your quota to see how much space you have available.
Files stored on Cabinet are scanned for viruses on a weekly basis. If a virus is found, the file is cleaned and a notice is sent to the owner of the file informing them that a virus was found and cleaned. If the file cannot be cleaned, the file is renamed and a message is sent to the owner indicating that the file is infected and that "INFECTED" has been added to the file name.
