How much quota do Paper docs and attachments take up?

Advanced Collaborator | Level 14

Hello

Let me confirm the followings about Dropbox Paper;

 

  1. Dropbox Paper documents now DO use the Dropbox storage but only 1/30(Approx) of a regular document.
  2. Files shown in the Paper Uploads folder are using your Dropbox storage.
  3. Image files added to the paper document are not using any Dropbox storage.

Is that correct?

Thanks!

Hi there @jazzmeg1, I hope you're having a good day so far!

 

Seems like you're right on each point there.

 

If your account is part of the new Paper 2020 release then Paper docs will indeed take up a very small amount of space.

 

This will be less than 100 bytes, which like you mentioned is less than 1/30th of a standard document file.

 

Also correct with your other 2 points there. Files uploaded to the Paper Uploads folder and take space in your account like a normal file, and images won't be uploaded to Dropbox and so they won't take any space in your account.

 

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions!
