Welcome Back!

As the start of classes quickly approaches, Nebraska campuses are busy preparing for the start of the 2017-18 academic year. The staff at HCC would like to welcome back all of our users and remind them of a few key policies.

QOS Increases for Acknowledgements:
Researchers who acknowledge the use of HCC in publications or presentations can receive increased priority. For more information on how to report such acknowledgements, please see: https://hcc.unl.edu/hcc-policies

Home vs Work:
While all /home files are backed up weekly, /work directories are not. Users are strongly encouraged to perform regular backups of important files in these directories. For more information, various options for backups and storage are outlined in our article "Preventing File Loss": http://newsroom.unl.edu/announce/holland/6679/38124

Purge Policy:

Users can use the command `hcc-purge -l' from the prompt of any of the clusters for a list of "purge eligible" files.
