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 and 500MB for mail 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.
