Maybe create a specific place for people to store these types of materials
- i.e. create an softlink in their home dir to a disk with more space that
isn't backed up.
Incidentally, here's a warning that stems from indirect experience: don't
do that. As the owner of the computer, if one of the users on there
decides to download copyrighted material (which probably already
happened), grab kid porn, fake credit card purchases, or launch a network
attack, you are responsible. As in fines and jail time responsible.
Especially if you're at a U.S. college, the college will at the very least
get a subpoena, and the college will be taking a hard look at you.
