How do I get my home directory increased? I need more space.

There is a hard quota of 60GB for all users, you will not be able to write further data to the your home directory if you exceed this quota. Home directory quotas are not increased.

There is more information about this, how to determine where you are using most space in your home directory and other filesystems which you can use on HPC here.

If you have deleted files via NX / NoMachine they may be in your Wastebasket and will still count towards your quota. To reclaim this space, log on using NX / NoMachine, right click on the Wastebasket icon and select 'Empty Wastebasket'.
