Repository Quotas

Select the Save Changes button at the bottom of the screen to save any changes made.

At the bottom of the image in the Management section, the usage and quota information is given.

If a user file is deleted from the repository by a user other than the owner of the file, the user's repository space usage will not be updated to reflect that file being deleted. The file space will still be counted as being used, and the user will not see the file or have access to it. To prevent this only the owner of the space should delete files from a space.
