  • DC MC: Stands for DC main chat.

Minimum file share[edit | edit source]

The minimum file share is set to 0 GiB for a short while when a new college term starts, to allow students to build up their share. After this initial period, a minimum file share size is imposed with the aim of increasing the availability and replication of files shared (mirroring). Users with a file share size less than this limit cannot search or download files, but can still access other features.

The current minimum file share size is 100 GiB.[3]
