Accounts Quotas & Guidelines
Below is a quota chart for all Smith accounts. Appeals for increase quota
may be made by using the
request form. Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis by
the IT Director. On each appeal, you give Smith IT the right to review the
content of your accounts with you, based on the
University of Maryland Policy on the
Acceptable Use of Information Technology, we may provide suggestions for
ways to use disk more efficiently.
- Part-time MBA students are giving an "email for life"
Smith forwarding address, but can request a full Smith
MBA-type email account by filling out a
New Account Request form.
When your mailfile is too close to the quota, you must reduce it's size.
Large mailfiles are in danger of being corrupted. Here are a few things you can
do to maintain your mailbox within your quota:
File Storage Guidelines
(Personal Space) are set to 5GB’s of
storage and O Drives (Departmental
Space) are set to 100GB’s of Storage.
These locations are backed up by Campus TSM every night and carry 30 revisions
of the data. Please save anything that you work on that is important to the
Business School on one of these two locations.
At the beginning of every semester, Full-time MBA students are given
a print quota of 600 pages*. If and when this quota is reached, the
student is responsible for getting a
Pay for Print account.
This account is created through the Office of Information Technology
(OIT) and is not supported by the Office of Smith IT Help Desk. For more
information regarding Pay for Print accounts, visit our
Pay for Print page or
contact the OIT Help Desk at 301-405-1400.
MBA students with GA positions or other employment at the Business
School may be able to get their quota increased by having their
firstname.lastname@example.org to request additional pages. This request
must come from a faculty or staff member and should mention how many
pages might be needed for your work in that position.
How can you track the pages you've used?
To monitor your print quota balance, log into a lab pc and hold your mouse over
the dollar sign in the bottom right taskbar. It will report your available
balance. If you need credit for pages lost due to printer malfunctions, just
bring the bad pages to the Helpdesk in suite 3520 of VMH and credit will be
applied to your balance.
