The home spaces are also available as CIFS shares for mounting as local drives on desktops and laptops in the IITD LAN.

Please note that the CSC home space is only for academic use and should not be used for storing recreational videos and songs. Automatic periodic checks will be carried out and user accounts may be disabled if inappropriate content is found.

Snapshots

The snapshots of the files system are available on the root folders of the file system. They can be accessed from any Desktop in CSC and also through CIFS at cifs://filer{01,02}.iitd.ernet.in/homes under the folder ~snapshot. We maintain five hourly snapshots (at 0400, 0800, 1200, 1600 and 2000 hrs), two nightly snapshots at two previous midnights, and three weekly snapshots obtained on last three Sundays. The snapshots are available as read-only folders and have the same file permissions as the original.

 


Starting from January 4, 2010 the CSC will provide enhanced disk space for all users. The new quotas for faculty, PhD students, staff and all other students will be 5GB, 1GB, 500MB and 500MB respectively.

To access their new homes all users can ssh to ssh1.iitd.ernet.in and all faculty can ssh to ssh2.iitd.ernet.in. ssh client is available by default on all versions of Unices, Linux and Mac included. Windows users can download and install a popular ssh client called Putty and a popular scp client called WinScp. The user homes will also be available from all client machines in the CSC.

The user homes will be backed up on a daily basis.

We should be able to enhance the user quotas further in the near future after we upgrade our hardware.
