In my file explorer, the S: drive shows a limit of 100 GB but my plan is for unlimited storage.

I am running Windows 7 Professional and Citrix Files version I also have beta features enabled. 

In my File Explorer, I see the S: drive and it shows I have 103 GB free of 100 GB, but the drive appears as full as the bar is filled up with blue. My current billing plan is for unlimited storage too. 

So I have two questions regarding this.
  1. Is it an issue that this is saying 103 GB free of 100 GB? The numbers don't make sense.
  2. Do I have unlimited storage on my plan or am I limited to 100 GB? On the web dashboard it shows my storage as unlimited.

The 100 GB is simply symbolic and does not represent how much storage you have in ShareFile. Windows forces a number, so we place 100 GB there. The rational behind using 100 GB is that this typically represents the max per file size limit an account can upload into ShareFile.

Hi Chris, in our case, we set a limit to 5 Gb and we see this : 

Since we have a limit, should we see 5 GB instead of 100 ?
Thank you!

I also encountered this scenario. I can't upload any files because it can say; It's already reached the limit of 100GB storage on our local drive. And I tried also to Free Up Space but nothing happened.

I decided to reinstall the app, and it's working now 100GB available storage.

But We don't want to reinstall over and over again once the limit reached.

Hope will help me to fix this.

Thanks in Advance!
