This document explains the purpose of a UW-Madison quota notification and recommended steps to take if you receive a notification.

Quota Notification

If your UW-Madison Box account has less than 10 GB of available storage, you will begin to receive a quota notification on a weekly basis until your account has more than 10 GB of available storage. Once your account has more than 10 GB of available storage, you will stop receiving notifications.

Please note, the quota notifications are not spam or phishing.
