Bigtemp is a large storage volume available from our Linux systems. From a Linux server, bigtemp is accessible in the root directory /bigtemp. To store files in this volume, create a folder in /bigtemp with the same name as your computing ID.

ktm5j@host ~ $ cd /bigtemp
ktm5j@host /bigtemp $ mkdir ktm5j && cd ktm5j
ktm5j@host /bigtemp/ktm5j $ 

You will have ownership of the new directory that you have created. Use chmod to adjust the permissions on this new directory if desired.

Bigtemp is meant to be seen as volatile scratch space and not long term storage. When storage gets low on this volume we will scan through and delete files with the oldest m-time.
