Penn State Storage Space Increase & Ride Share news

University significantly increases personal PASS resources

Penn State (ITS) has significantly increased the amount of personal storage space available to University community from the current 1 GB max to 5 GB max. Your initial allocation is 500 MB (0.5 GB) but you can incrementally increase it by 0.5 GB whenever you want more, space or you can use the drop down menu and directly increase it to another suitable size. I recommend that you use the incremental increase feature as this would lead to a more orderly allocation of resources by the ITS team. Please do not be greedy and do not cause a "bank run" on disk space.
The PASS space is meant for course work, research, Web projects, portfolios, personal blogging, graphics, photos and more.
ITS is also unveiling a new data restoration utility. For more details on that: visit the ITS Knowledge Base at http://kb.its.psu.edu/ and search on the criteria "Recreating PASS Space."
