Manage Your Amazon EFS Storage Volume in SageMaker Studio Classic


As of November 30, 2023, the previous Amazon SageMaker Studio experience is now named Amazon SageMaker Studio Classic. The following section is specific to using the Studio Classic application. For information about using the updated Studio experience, see Amazon SageMaker Studio.

The first time a user on your team onboards to Amazon SageMaker Studio Classic, Amazon SageMaker creates an Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) volume for the team. A home directory is created in the volume for each user who onboards to Studio Classic as part of your team. Notebook files and data files are stored in these directories. Users don't have access to other team member's home directories. Amazon SageMaker domain does not support mounting custom or additional Amazon EFS volumes.


Don't delete the Amazon EFS volume. If you delete it, the domain will no longer function and all of your users will lose their work.

To find your Amazon EFS volume
  1. Open the SageMaker console.

  2. On the left navigation pane, choose Admin configurations.

  3. Under Admin configurations, choose domains.

  4. From the Domains page, select the domain to find the ID for.

  5. From the Domain details page, select the Domain settings tab.

  6. Under General settings, find the Domain ID. The ID will be in the following format: d-xxxxxxxxxxxx.

  7. Pass the Domain ID, as DomainId, to the describe_domain method.

  8. In the response from describe_domain, note the value for the HomeEfsFileSystemId key. This is the Amazon EFS file system ID.

  9. Open the Amazon EFS console. Make sure the AWS Region is the same Region that's used by Studio Classic.

  10. Under File systems, choose the file system ID from the previous step.

  11. To verify that you've chosen the correct file system, select the Tags heading. The value corresponding to the ManagedByAmazonSageMakerResource key should match the Studio Classic ID.
