Check account storage usage
Delete unwanted folders/files
Before deleting folders/files, please keep the following in mind:
Below are tips on how to decide which folders/files to delete:
If your UW-Madison Box account's storage usage is full and you do not delete files/folders, you will not be able to create or upload new folders/files.
You will continue to have access to shared folders/files.
If you notice your account’s storage usage or folder size is not changing after deleting folders/files, please contact the DoIT Help Desk to have the issue fixed. Box is aware of a bug that is causing account storage usage or file counts to display the wrong size.
If you need help or have questions about your UW-Madison Box account’s storage usage, you can request a consultation.
