Passed storage limit, do files still work?

Explorer | Level 3


I uploaded a file that was over 2 GB in size (I did not realise that the max size for a basic account was only 2 GB, only reading that the maximum uploading size is 50 GB from .)

While the process was eventually successful, (I had to upload the file multiple times, as either an error or an interruption would occur) I was warned that I had exceeded my limit. Will I still be able to access the file in the future? Or should I look into upgrading my account?

If it shows at then the file has uploaded and you are fine, but, you wont be able to edit it/change it etc. at all. 

If it hasnt then yes, you'll need to get more space
