Scratch Cleanup Policy
Rivanna’s scratch file system has a limit of 10TB and 350,000 files per user. This policy is in place to guarantee the stability and performance of the scratch file system. Scratch is intended as a temporary work directory. It is not backed up and files that have not been accessed for more than 90 days are marked for deletion. Users are encouraged to back up their important data. Home directories and leased storage are not subject to this policy.
Request Additional Storage
Researchers can lease additional storage, Value or Project storage, for sharing public or moderately sensitive data within a research group. Value and Project storage volumes are mounted on Rivanna and can also be accessed from local workstations. Learn more about our storage offerings.
