Vis Lab Frequently Asked Questions. If you have a question not answered in the FAQs then please email Gordon Erlebacher.

Are there backups?

There are no backups. Users have access to scratch1/ and scratch2/ partitions in their home directory for the storage of data files and other files related to their visualization work. These files might be delete if disk storage becomes an issue. At present there is approximately 7 Terabyte of aggregate storage in under these directories. Any small files that require backup should be stored under fshome/, also in the home directory.
