Local Disk Space

Can I use the local hard-drives to store stuff?

If you are a funded CS student and have been assigned a workstation, you can request local disk storage space on your assigned machine.

Is it safe to store my data on local workstation hard-drives?

No! Workstation hard drives should be regarded as temporary work space only. PC disks are scrubbed periodically without warning.

Store your data in your Linux home directory, a thumb drive, or CD/DVD.
