The FileSpace program is launched automatically when you log in at any of the MCS Windows workstations. The icon appears on the taskbar and the state can be checked at any time by double-clicking on this icon.
The output displays the space your files are currently occupying as a proportion of your filespace limit; you are not allowed to create files which would take your usage beyond this limit.
The FileSpace utility runs in the background all the time, and will automatically pop up to display a warning window if you go over your quota limit. At this point, the situation can normally be rescued by deleting files from your filespace or reducing your profile (e.g. by deleting items you have placed on the desktop). You should not attempt to logout while your profile is too large.
