    Staff = Unlimited

    Students = Unlimited

    For those that abuse the privelages their MP3 collection gets wiped and their quota is set accordingly to what year group they are in.

    Year 7 = 100MB
    Year 8 = 200MB
    Year 9 = 300MB
    Year 10 = 500MB
    Year 11 = 750MB
    Sixth Form = 1GB (Accounts are recreated when they join and they don't continue to use their old Year 11 account).

    No limits at the moment, but fast running out of storage space on my ageing servers, so I think some form of limiting may be looked at this summer, when I've actually had a chance to review how the server space is allocated at the moment. Why RM CC3 has to hide the shares in silly places, and duplicate everything to every server I don't know!

    Staff: unlimited
    Students: unlimited

    We're lucky here that managment realise that storage is not free and will get more drives and backup space when required to allow people to have unlimited space. We have some staff that deal with video with 60GB of 'processed' data.

    KS3 Students - 150MB
    KS4 Students - 300MB

    Staff were unlimited but a quota of 5GB per user will be in place come September following one user who has over 40GB of data! (24GB on Home Directory and 16GB thats right I said 16GB on her profile!)

    I have found this very interesting....

    We set student accounts to 10MB !!! And then we adjust art related subjects to 100MB.....

    How much space do you guys have and how many students??

    We have 1100 students, of which 800 require this space...

    Teachers are not limited as such... We did place a 100MB limit, but only to stop staff using all the network space up!! We found a while ago, a teacher filled the network drive copying data over, and to make it worse, when we deleted data to make more space, the software they were using filled it back up again! So thats why we have limited it....no other reason...

    Students: 50MB on one server and 300MB on the DT server.
    Staff: 300MB and DT staff have 800MB upwards on DT server.

    However these figures are slim and DO NOT permit any kind of video, audio or any such content to be stored.

    Manglement wanted it all nice and clear.

    was unlimited for all accounts but now impose:

    1gb normal staff user
    2gb ICT staff user
    500 mb pupil

    Don't know how students can get by with 10mb as rrichmond mentioned!

    Staff = 3 gig , but very few of them actually use more than 500Mb.
    Students = 250Mb
    Media Students = 2Gig (They have their own server)

    Students 500mb and then 700mb in year 11

    And thats not really sufficient especially if they do art as PS files can easily be 50mb each.

    With all the media use thats creeping into the curriculum I'm of the opinion that 2GB per student is more like the amount needed.

    Staff currently unlimited but some are abusing the system and it may be necessary to set some limits
