User Share

Each member is given 10GB of space on the NAS. The member space is backed up locally each evening and mirrored to an offsite NAS once a week.

Virtual Machines present in the user share are not backed up!

Space Shared

This is a space shared between all machines that login using AHA images. It's also mounted to AHA Virtual Box Ubuntu images. It can be used a temporary space to store items and transfer them between machines as you work.

20GB are allotted to this space.

This space is wiped by the NAS nightly at 12:01AM.

Software Share

This share is mounted at login to the windows workstations. It is read only from the workstations. It is populated with software that is used at AHA and the specific versions used.
