What is my current disk quota?

Registered students are allotted a 500 megabyte Internet disk storage quota on UMD systems; alumni have 30 megabytes.

If you do not do either of these in the time given, your Internet/email account will be closed, and you will not have access to email.

How do I delete files?

If you are over your disk quota, take these steps to delete files you no longer need:

Deleting files using the UMD File Manager tool

The UMD File Manager tool provides a user-friendly web interface for managing your Mail and Samba (MyFiles/MyWeb) files.

  1. From any on-campus computer, open a web browser and login to the UMD File Manager page (you will be prompted to authenticate with your email/Internet ID and password).
    Note: If you are off-campus, you must connect using the VPN client.
  2. Select your "Home file folders" (including windir/MyFiles), your "Mail File Folders", or your "Web Files Folders" (MyWeb).
  3. Check all files you wish to delete, then click on the "Work with Checked Files" button at the bottom of the list.
  4. On the next page, select "Delete Files or Folders" to removed all previously checked items. Or, select "Zip or Unzip files" to compress the files to conserve disk space.
