Softwares will give you different types of error messages when you exceed the allowed space in your home directory. Most often they will complain about being unable to write.

Some users have quotas set on their home directories. You can request HPC Administrators to check your home directory quota usage (if applicable) by sending a request to hpc@uconn.edu.

To find which directories and files are taking space, use the du command:

 du -hsc ~/*
