By establishing of a Informatcs user ID storage areas are automatically connected:
- a (private) "home" directory
- and possibly other project directories
These directories have a limited (standard) volume, which can be extended in justified cases, on request. Currently, 5GB for home are assigned. The directories are backed up regularly. For temporary storage needs additional system-dependent so-called "scratch" areas are available, but these are not guaranteed, and may be deleted without warning at any time.
