How to solve "Disk quota exceeded" error

This message indicates there is no space left in ether a home directory or a group disk.

When you face it, you should delete unused files or purchase an additional group disk to keep enough free disk space.


Please note that temporary files are generated at the home directory in some cases, and an application sometimes needs over 25 GB of a disk space for creating temporary files. (25 GB is the capacity of a home directory)

To avoid running out of disk space, we recommend not to use home directory but to use local scratch area or shared scratch area for temporary file location.
