I see that there is a bug or 'new feature'

A file shared with me (owned by another account) is showing

Type Image

Size 4.6 MB

Storage used 4.6 MB

Owner 'another account'

So apparently shared files now goes towards my storage or is there a bug in the information?

  • You are right, but I did not have reputation to add/comment to that thread. I believe things have changed recently, that is why I had to start a new one.

I don't think there has been a change to this policy

Files Shared with You

Files shared by you count against your quota. But what about files that someone shared with you? They don’t. So don't be concerned the next time someone shares a boatload of files with you.


  • So there must be a bug in the reporting of storage used. Now all files images shared with me show Size: nnn MB and Storage Used : nnn MB. Whatever Im the owner or not.
