File storage options on RCAC systems include long-term storage (home directories, Fortress) and short-term storage (scratch directories, /tmp directory). Each option has different performance and intended uses, and some options vary from system to system as well. Daily snapshots of home directories are provided for a limited time for accidental deletion recovery. Scratch directories and temporary storage are not backed up and old files are regularly purged from scratch and /tmp directories. More details about each storage option appear below.
