Can't find files under root site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I got an alert that said that one of our Sharepoint online sits was low on space. I went in to the admin panel and increased the storage limit. That bit is fine. The problem is that I can't find any data under the site. In the insight pane it says that the site has a considerable amount of files and has used about 100 GB of storage.

    The site is the root site of our Sharepoint tennant e.g. https://contoso.sharepoint.com. We have several subsites under https://contoso.sharepount.com/sites/, but they don't nearly add up to the amount of data used in the root site. Plus, as I understad it they, have their own quotas. What am I missing?

    Kind regards

    Tom

  • Hi Tombalur,

    Have you analyzed the storage metrics of your root site?, there you can see the what exactly consuming more storage from you site.

    you can access storage metrics by clicking site settings -> under site  collection administration category -> search for storage metrics or you can access directly using the following URL structure e.g. https://contoso.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/storman.aspx.
