Details about PowerBI Dataset size (1 Gb) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 
    I have a question about PowerBI dataset size (1 Gb) : is this limit the size of the initial data that we import to PowerBI, or is it the size of data once imported and transfomed through PowerQuery. Suppose I have a SharePoint list with thousands of lines. I import this list content to PowerBI desktop, and I see that PBI downloads 10 Mb. However, After cleaning this data using PowerQuery, I save only 1 Mb. So, in this case, does PowerBI consume 1 Mb or 10 Mb ? 
    On my storage report, I see that powerBI uses only 1 Mb, please can you confirm ? 
    Thanks for your help
