Box Sync 4.0 provides detailed user notifications if there an issue syncing a file or folder.
"Quota Exceeded" notifications typically appear to alert Sync users that the owner of the folder displaying the error has reached their maximum storage limit on their Box account.
Box Sync’s functions are also dependent on the file size limitations of the folder owner. The maximum file size limit for this account is based on the folder owner’s account type. See https://www.box.com/pricing/ for eligibility information.
All devices with Box Sync installed.
If you are unable to sync a file in Box because of the inherited file quota limits, alert the folder owner and confirm that they have enough storage available on their account. They can find their current storage usage by:
- Navigating to Account Settings >Account.
- Scroll down to Account Details.
- Locate the Storage Used item.
If there is no storage available, the folder owner will need to take one of the following steps;
- Delete unnecessary content that they own.
- Have their admin increase the storage on their account.
Once you have confirmed that the folder owner has enough open storage, press Retry All from the Problem Notification menu.
