start with 100GB
storage. D-INFK students
are limited to 10GB
Dedicated storage can be allocated for research groups, projects and classes which is then not bound to a personal account. ITCs
should contact our service desk
All data is backed up daily for 21 days.
Restore from a backup is often not needed. Deleted files are moved to the trash. Files are also versioned and have a dynamic history that uses up to 50% of an accounts unused disk space.
Data in a cloud account can be shared with others. Sharing by link is best for people outside the D-INFK
or ETH Zurich
in general. Sharing with people on cloud.inf.ethz.ch
is best done by user name or circle. More details are on the help page
Each user can define circles, groups of other users to more easily share documents with groups of other users.
Collaborative Document Editing
The office documents (text, spreadsheet and presentation) and the editor for markdown files (ending in
) is collaborative. Documents shared with others can be edited concurrently.
