File Server Quota Limits, Account


  • The Cabrillo College File Server is purposed for storing Cabrillo College business-related documents - not personal, or other non-business-related, items.
  • Any files that a person saves to the college file server are then owned by that person.
  • Each person has an individual quota limit for the files that he/she owns on the college file server.  Quota limits are not related to any specific folder on the file server.
  • Your quota limit applies to all your network drives cumulatively; the combined size of all the files you own in all of your network drives cannot exceed your quota limit.
  • When possible, please review the files that you own in your network drives and remove any un-needed files.

Quota Limit Request Note: Cabrillo I.T. will evaluate, and review, your current File Server quota limits and usage, prior to adjusting any quota limits.

File Sharing Note: While the Cabrillo College File Server has file-sharing functionality, we encourage Cabrillo Faculty and Staff to use Google G Suite (Google Drive/Docs) for any collaborative file sharing between Cabrillo employees. There are various benefits to doing so, including, (but not limited to): the ability to share and view files from off-campus, the ability to have multiple collaborative editors accessing the same file simultaneously, etc.
