Administrators in Egnyte can set up a notification for users that exceed a storage size limit within their Private Folder. When this setting is enabled, Admins will receive a weekly summary report with the top 15 users that have exceeded the quota. If a user exceeds the size limit, they will receive a daily notification in their browser and through email until the issue is resolved.

Set Up Private Folder Quota

  1. Sign in as an Admin and navigate to the Configuration tab of Settings and scroll down to the Private Folder Quota section.
  2. Enable the setting, enter a size in GB's, and check the "Notify individual users when the quota has been exceeded" box.
  3. If you would like to exclude certain users from receiving the notification, like C-level executives, check the "Allow specific users to exceed quota" box and select any users that should be excluded.


  4. Once all of your changes have been made, scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save.
