Everyone at UB has 128 GB of cloud storage space in UBbox. Find out why that amount was chosen, how to check how much quota you’ve used, and what to do if you need more storage space for your work at UB.
To see how much UBbox storage you’ve used:
If you had more than 128 GB stored in UBbox before March 29, 2022, you will still be able to use UBbox to edit, access and share your files as before. Your quota was calculated to be an additional 10% over the amount of storage you were using before the quota was implemented.
Very few UBbox accounts have historically used more than 128 GB. In fact, greater than 99.9% of all people using UBbox were using less than 128 GB in UBbox at the time the quota was implemented.
If you’ve reached your UBbox storage quota, consider deleting old files, or downloading them for archival storage elsewhere.
Don’t forget: You also have 128 GB of storage as part of Microsoft 365 with OneDrive. In addition to being able to edit, access and share files, OneDrive has several benefits as part of Microsoft 365, including the ability to automatically save your Office documents and collaborate with colleagues from anywhere.
If you still need additional storage space for your work at UB, talk to your departmental support staff about possible accommodations.
