Unix Network Space

By mapping drives (Windows) or mounting volumes (Mac), you can access Amherst network storage shares and manipulate files as if they were stored on your own computer. For many purposes, mapped network drives or mounted volumes provide a simpler way to manage files than using SFTP or SSH and Unix commands.

Unix Quotas

All members of the college community, including students, faculty, and staff, are given 500 MB of Unix storage space, which includes your W: drive and your home directory on Romulus/Remus. You will receive an automated warning email as you approach the limit. Instructions on checking your current Unix usage can be found below.
