The Storage server provides secure networked personal storage accessible via your HaverApps username and password. You can access it from the following operating systems: Windows 8, 7 and Vista, and Macintosh OS X.
You may keep files in your space on the Storage server as long you remain with the college. You may safely store files on the Storage server for use from any networked computer on campus, or share files on the Storage server with others having Haverford email accounts.
Faculty have a quota of 4 GB on the Storage server. Students, staff, and all other users have a quota of 2 GB. Any files that you post to the Storage server will count toward your quota. This includes files stored in your personal folder (including your personal web space), the personal folders of others, or any departmental folders.
Note that if you have posted files in any of the departmental folders or inside the writable folders of other users, this may also count toward your quota. Each file in shared folders count towards the quota of the last person to edit it. For example, if Sam places a file in a shared folder, it first belongs to him and counts as part of his quota. If Sally later edits that file, it no longer counts towards Sam’s quota, but instead it counts toward Sally’s quota. If Tanya later edits the file, it no longer counts toward either Sam or Sally’s quota, but towards Tanya’s quota.
If you are over quota, please delete unneeded files from the Storage server. Students who have filled their space with academic work and feel they need extra space for their senior thesis or course projects should contact their instructor or thesis advisor. Upon recommendation by the faculty member, we will increase allotted space, if possible.
