Hi @RickU, thanks for messaging the Community!

If you've deleted files, the site should free up the quota on the account. 

You can check the quota on your account from here

If you need any more details, feel free to message back!

Thank you for the information. I had deleted files, but storage space was not increasing. I will see what it looks like later today.

The storage has not increased even after deleting almost all files. I will look again tomorrow. Thanks again for the information.

Are you a member of any shares? That could be eating up your quota
