User home directories are stored at the central Chalmers file servers. Information can be found at http://www.chalmers.se/insidan/SV/arbetsredskap/it/bastjanster/filutrymme . There is also some information in English at http://www.chalmers.se/insidan/EN/tools/it/basic-services/file-area. Disk quota is enforced on these servers.
At CSE, there is also a local fileserver, called soleil.ce.chalmers.se . At this location we can store lager quantities of data, but there is no nightly backup as on the central servers. This server is suitable for temporary files generated by large simulations etc.
From Linux workstations and servers, the local filesystem is available at /cab/ce/subsys/fs/backup . If you want to use this area, send an email to email@example.com . You will then get your own area /cab/ce/subsys/fs/backup/one_week/user/~ and/or /cab/ce/subsys/fs/backup/none/user/~ .
From Windows, you need to mount \\soleil.ce.chalmers.se\ce . Your directories are then available at subsys\fs\backup\one_week\user\~, etc.
