To view the current status do the following:

The red line shows your quota status on your inbox mail file on the CSM server.

The  blue line shows your quota status on your  HOME directory.

The green line shows your quota on the extended file system.

If you see a star * near the number, it means that you are over quota !

Getting to the hard limit will disable any use on your files. In this case you need to open request on this system Help Desk.

There is also a limit for the number of file and directories you can have under files column.

For any further help please open a request at our helpdesk.
