Project Site Storage Limit RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using Project Server 2010. While creating my PWA in SharePoint Central Admin i limited the size of SharePoint Site to 100MB and i want to keep it the way it is. Now there is Project we have created in our Project Centre that needs to attach some video files. For that particular Project, I want to increase the Project Site limit to unlimited. How can i do that for one single Project Site. I dont want to change the size quota for all Project Sites but just one.

    Need Help

    Thanks,

  • Hi Fahad,

    Site quota can be managed at the site collections for a content database. You can have many site collections in a content databases where you can set the options but  I am sorry to say that I haven't seen any option so far for indivisual site quota option under a site collection, could be as designed. May be you can post in SharePoint general question & get a better reply from sharepoint gurus or a workaround.

  • Hi fahad,

    As far as I know, There is no option to set the quota in project sites. You can do this at the site collection level. Even the powershell can do this at the SPSite level. didn't find at the SPweb level

    change the storage limits for a site collection by using Central Administration

    1. Verify that you have the following administrative credentials:You must be a member of the Farm Administrators group

    2. On the Central Administration home page, click Application Management.

    3. On the Application Management page, in the Site Collections section, click Configure quotas and locks.

    4. On the Site Collection and Quota Locks page, ensure that the correct site collection is displayed. If you want to change the site collection, in the Site Collection section, expand the Site Collection list, and then click Change Site Collection. Use the Select Site Collection page to select a site collection.

    5. If the site collection currently uses a quota template, do the following to specify an individual quota:

      • On the Site Collection Quotas and Locks page, in the Site Quota Information section, expand the Current quota template list, and then select Individual Quota.

  • Thanks Amit for replay but as i said i want to increase the quota of just one Project Site not all. This will change all the sites under the PWA Site Collection.
