Math Faculty Computing Facility (MFCF) wont take responsibility for lost files or missed deadlines!
It's the responsibility of you the user, to backup your work and to have a backup plan in case of service outages.
This server defaults to volatile storage! To ensure your hard work persists, use
_NetHome (campus storage). The volatile storage is fast and practical for big data courses. However volatile files are placed in an
AUTO_DELETE folder after a week. The
AUTO_DELETE files are then latter permanently deleted once they age a few months. Volatile files may also be deleted if storage becomes full or an unexpected disk failure!
Instructors are encouraged to keep course work computationally inexpensive. Also to remind students the importance of keeping backups of their work and storing important files under
Users abusing the service will get banned! Please be ethical and pleasant to the others on the server. Policy and computer ethics.
Always keep a backup plan in case the service goes down. We are running this service without a failover. If the hardware has a critical failure, it might take a few days to restore.
