What is the size of a user account quota?
The disk space allocated for user account owners on the central servers is designated as quota. Two different quota areas are allocated for METU users and their capacities are independent from each other.
Depending on their status, METU users have the below indicated e-mail quota on the servers:
- Students: 250 MB
- METU Administrative Staff and Research Assistants: 750 MB
- METU Academic Staff : 1.5 GB
When 90% of this quota is full, an alert message is sent to the user.
Due to E-mail Quota applications, when quota limits are exceded, incoming e-mails can not be delivered to the receiver and will be returned to the sender. So that, it is important to use e-mail quotas within the limits.
Depending on their status, METU users have the below indicated file quota on the servers:
- Students: 100 MB
- METU Staff: 250 MB
- Units within the EİS Project: 250 MB
- Student Groups: 250 MB
- Web users: 250 MB
In compulsory cases you can apply for a file or e-mail quota increase by sending an e-mail to the hotlinemetu.edu.tr and state the type of quota you want to increase and the reason for the increase request.
