Central Storage Areas
FEUP has two central storages for user data, such as web pages, personal files or other documents.
Each user has a personal storage area whose storage capacity is limited by a quota. Access to personal areas, as well as quota limitations for each type of user, are established in the Regulations for Access to and Use of FEUP's Computer Resources.
Servers for Access to Central Storage Areas
The personal storage areas provided by the gnomo.fe.up.pt and pinguim.fe.up.pt servers are different. Staff users have two central storage areas, one that is visible to the gnomo.fe.up.pt and yoda.fe.up.pt servers and another one that is visible to the pinguim.fe.up.pt server. However, the amount of storage used by each user is calculated by adding the amounts used in the two areas.
Users can also access these two personal areas via SAMBA. The main area is located at \\samba.fe.up.pt\login (replacing login with the username assigned by CICA) and the other area is located at \\samba.fe.up.pt\aulas.
NB: For the purpose of publishing web pages, use the pinguim.fe.up.pt server. If you opt for SAMBA access, use the \\samba.fe.up.pt\login area.
