Your AFS space is your very own on campus. Each CCID is provided 24 GB of Andrew File System (AFS) disc space. Use it to store files and web pages that can be accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection. While on campus, your AFS space will be accessible within the computer lab you use once you’ve authenticated using your CCID.
Anyone possessing a valid and active CCID has 24GB of file storage space on AFS. To access your AFS storage space you must log in through Samba server software. Please follow this help article for step by step access to AFS.
The basic concept underlying AFS is that of a wide-area file system managed by client and server programs. The file system appears to the user as a giant virtual hard disk or megadirectory made up of subdirectories from across the entire continent. A user's designated portion of the AFS file system is a subdirectory called a volume. Volumes are mounted by a client AFS program through a Kerberos authentication/password procedure.
We recommend consulting the Information Technology Use and Management Policy for information regarding acceptable use practices and security issues around using your CCID to access AFS space.
