What are Quotas?

Quota limits are imposed on all network storage: U: drives, Network shared drives, *User (Roaming) Profiles, and Employee Email. These limits have been applied to track usage progression for planning purposes and ensure everyone has equal access to network storage resources. As all VIU users (Faculty, Staff and Students) share these network resources, it is important that everyone makes efficient use of the available space.

*User (Roaming) Profiles - please see our web page on User Profiles.
