Manage Your EFS Storage Volume in SageMaker Studio

The first time a user on your team onboards to Amazon SageMaker Studio, 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 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.


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. From the SageMaker Studio Control Panel, under Studio Summary, find the Studio ID. The ID will be in the following format: d-xxxxxxxxxxxx.

  2. Pass the Studio ID, as DomainId, to the describe_domain method.

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

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

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

  6. 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 ID.
