Why am I receiving the message: Error file size exceeds quota?

Canvas has a 50MB file quota on user files. If you are trying to upload a file and receive the message Error: file size exceeds quota, you might have reached your user file storage quota.

To view files and see how much of your storage you've used, see the Canvas article How do I view my user files as a student?

We recommend downloading and backing up your files to BuckeyeBox or another storage tool, then deleting some of your files to free up space.

See the article CarmenCanvas File quota for more information on file storage limits.
