Disk Quota Exceeded while running tutorial jobs

I am running the UM job u-be064, a copy of u-ag761 from the UM tutorials from this online resource:


In the final section (i.e. where it is supposed to run smoothly) I get an error from atmos-main saying I have run out of disk space. I think I have identified this to be my work/n02/n02/jjas3 on Archer, where I have 10 GB of space. Can this be extended?


Here is the error from the job stderr output file:

sys-122 : UNRECOVERABLE error on system request

Disk quota exceeded

Increased to 100GB - it may take a short time to be usable.
