personal and project data storage nagging limits may be active in addition to the file system quota. These limits are not enforced technically but you (and your ITC) are informed by mail when your disk usage exceeds the limits. The nagging limits can be viewed in your user account details for your group here.
- Nobody hogs all available disk space
- The risk that the available disk space runs out because of accidental growth of data is minimized
- The explosive growth of user data is slowed down
