I suspect I am getting a false notice about insufficient disk space because of where Atlas in attempting to store files - is there a way to set the file paths?

As you can see...

root@PowerSuckerIII:~# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda1 110G 5.5G 99G 6% / none 4.0K 0 4.0K 0% /sys/fs/cgroup udev 3.9G 4.0K 3.9G 1% /dev tmpfs 799M 1.6M 797M 1% /run none 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock none 3.9G 15M 3.9G 1% /run/shm none 100M 64K 100M 1% /run/user /dev/sdb1 7.4G 3.3G 3.8G 46% /var /dev/md0 20G 51M 19G 1% /tmp /dev/md1 900G 536G 318G 63% /home

...there is plenty of space available on my system, just not in /var where it appears Atlas wants to store whatever huge files (against standard linux practices) it needs to download.

A little about my setup: I realize the drives and partitions on my system are a little strange but there is good reason for that... performance: /sda is a an SSD used for boot and / Makes the system very fast, but since /var is used for logging and constantly written to I don't want to burn off writes on an SSD since I have 2 spindle drives - /sdb1 is used for /var, /sdc1 is my swap partition, /sd[bc]2 is Raid0 for /tmp, and /sd[bc]3 is a Raid1 for /home

Obviously I'm qualified and not adverse to customizing things in Linux - I just need to know how to do it for Boinc / Atlas

Any help appreciated.

If you go to the Atlas web page, Your Account, under "Preferences" go to Computing Preferences; what values does it have under "Disk and Memory Usage"?
