Thank you for that. I am not very good with such scripts so I used du
--max-depth=1 -h in /home to give me the listing for everyone.  The
biggest user we have is using 400 MB.  You are right that 37 GB is
small nowadays.  When we originally purchased the drives (37x2 SCSI
drives in a hardware RAID mirror configuration) it was the most we
could afford.  However, we only have 12 computers, and a total
userbase of 25 students, so it has been more that sufficient for
several years.  I also backup and wipe it at the end of every school
year for a fresh install.

Are there any other possibilities?

Thank you.
