Archive Status & Staging Disk Capacity

Planned Archive Downtimes

These are scheduled downtimes which will affect access to the HST Archive. Note: Due to the nature of the archive systems, we cannot always report unscheduled downtimes.


Public HST data is also available at CADC and ST-ECF:


Check on the status of your individual requests here.

Staging Disk Capacity

This is the most current capacity of the Archive host's ( staging disk:

7.0 terabytes available

If the capacity is near 100%, then the staging disk is full, and HOST retrievals and retrivals submitted through the Web interface will fail. When that happens, you may either:

  • Wait until there is more space on the staging disk (every hour, files older than three days are swept from the staging disk), or
  • you can select NET retrieval instead of HOST and have the data sent directly to your machine.
When the disk is full, and you have data on it you don't need, please let us know so we can delete it to make space for other retrievals.
