Storage Space - how does it work

Storage Space - how does it work

A curiosity, how does the storage space work? because for a work my boss shared a folder and all of a sudden my storage space ran out, and I didn't even upload a single file. I thought that everyone uploaded to their own space, not that it also occupied that of the people with whom you share a folder.

Thanks

Hi @Mihai2323 

You have misunderstood I'm afraid. Any file in your folder uses your space (unless you are in a Business plan). So the shared folder WILL use your quota.
