Gallery Storage and Limit Question

Post by Metina on February 20th 2012, 5:20 pm

I searched several other posted threads with similar answers and couldn't find my answer.

How do you find out how much space is being used in your gallery? I just added 300 mb and it now reads 620 used at 100% being used so we still can't post. I don't want to keep buying until I know how much more I need to spend.

Also, is there a way to limit the number of photos members can put in the gallery? I have limited the size but some of my members are hogging up all my space and I hate to go through and just delete. (I have asked the offenders to clean up but feel setting a limit could stop this).'


Thanks for the help.

Hello,

Misc tab // storage

I don't think you can limit how many photos you can have.

Thanks for the reply. This tab shows how much have purchased, it doesn't say how much is currently stored there. I have purchased a total of 620 mb of space and it says it is 100% used.

I need to find out how much is in used so I can decide whether to buy a bit more or have everyone clean out. Thanks!

Again, this only tells me how many photos are there, not how many mb are being used. It only shows how much I have purchased and that it is at 100% usage. I added 300 MB today and it still shows full.

It has around 6000 photos. I need to know how much space these 6000 photos require.

We already given you what you need.

Photos sizes are all different. There isn't a fix amount.

It doesn't say how much is currently in use. Only the megabytes purchased(and I was still at 100%).

Thus I took it upon myself and copied the %s of the gallery of the members and put them in excel and the added up the %. This showed I was at 168%. I then surmised that I needed to buy at least double of what I had to have any free space.

Still never told the megabytes in use, but with double the space bought, I have 24% free.

So if anyone else comes across this, all you can do is what I did as the forum DOES NOT tell you how many megabytes are actually being used by members.

This is what I am talking about in the misc tab // storage . If this doesn't answer your question, then no much I can do as this is the only thing that tells us how much is used.
