moderated Re: Deleting attachments when out of space #update


If attachments are going to be deleted when allotted space is met, is there a way that inserted images can retain the name of the image that is being inserted? Right now if you insert an image in the body of the message and then go to retrieve it from the group's site, it shows up as a number and not the name of the image. The attachments I am showing in this email shows what I am talking about.
The image with the 0 as it's name was inserted in the body of the email and saved from the inserted graphic. The image with the tags name was retrieved from the attachment.
In many cases the artist of these images want the file name to stay as it was written. But saving it from the body of the email right now doesn't do that.

Mark -- Thanks for the heads-up...such is generally my understanding of how the "Out of Space" setting was intended to function. I'm assuming the extra 5% is to allow file and photo uploads to continue to work?

Yes, that's correct.

What happens if 95% of your quota is being used by other items -- would ALL of the group's attachments then be deleted? Not saying that's wrong behavior, but want to clarify.

Yes, all attachments would be deleted.

Also, will upload restrictions now be enforced at the quota level (exactly 1 GB, 10 GB, etc)? In the past, some have reported substantial "grace storage" before such uploads were actually inhibited.

Yes. The "grace storage" was only for attachments, because this process wasn't working. It's always been the case that if your group is over the limit, you could not upload additional photos or files.

Thanks, Mark
