Accessing Box Storage Amount
Follow the steps below to find the current storage amount of your Box account. Please note: The maximum storage limit for a Box account is 5TB. If you reach the 5TB maximum limit, you will receive a Box-generated error message and be unable to upload data until space is made.
Note: These procedures only work for Box accounts where the user has the ‘owner’ permission. You cannot check the storage used on ORG accounts or Box accounts shared with you.

- Select the ‘Account’ tab from the ‘Account Settings’ screen and scroll down.
