As IT administrators, we understand that you want to be notified when a storage limit has reached its capacity. Administrators who have access to retention information can now have a warning email delivered by using the retention system settings. In today’s weekly tip we will show you how to enable this site storage warning from your Thru web portal.

Follow the instructions below:

Step 1: Go to Retention Options within the Administrator Dashboard.

Step 2: Click the Modify button and check the box under Site Storage. A drop-down list of storage limits will appear.

Step 3: We recommend selecting a size of 70% of your total limit so that you can have enough warning time to manage retention rules.

This will help you better manage stale data files and give ample time to work with your Thru account manager to increase your storage before you hit your storage limits. Another advantage of using these warnings is to monitor any users who may be “hogging” storage space. You can then work with users who seem to be in need of more storage and work out any seasonal business needs in your Thru cloud storage.
