1.95GB site limit RRS feed

  • Question

  • There is a warning in PWA that my site collection is full, and when I look at Storage Metrics it shows that there is a 1.95GB limit. According to the link below, we should have a 10GB per site limit, not 2GB for the entire collection. SharePoint is also supposed to have up to a 1TB limit per site collection. Is the 1.95GB limit due to actions by the SharePoint admin, or is it a different problem?

  • Hi,

    I just tested it and indeed it seems like the default tenant has a 1,95GB limit, but if your generate a new one (you can have up to 7 PWA), it will have a 10GB limit. Maybe other experts will give us more information about this. Otherwise I'll try to have more information from MS and come back to you.


    Hope this helps,

  • Thank you for the help. We are planning on having hundreds of subsites, each with several gigabytes of data. Obviously even 10GB is not enough. I suppose we will have to look into purchasing additional storage anyways. Expanding to 10GB in the meantime would be very helpful, though.

  • Turns out it was as simple as having the SharePoint admin expand our quota. But I will let them know about the 10GB limit on new collections.

  • Was your SharePoint admin able to expand the quota passed 10GB, or just to 10GB?

  • They've expanded it to 4GB for the time being.
