Can't increase a user's My Site quota

  Asked By: Margret    Date: Dec 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 4421

Somehow one of our users was able to upload a gigantic file (close to 50MB) and
that put him way over his quota on his my site - about 141 MB as seen in the
Usage Summary under their My Site's Site Settings.

When I go into Central Admin, Application Management, Site Collection Quotas and
Locks, and then click on their name (/personal/[user]) in the Select Site
Collection dialog window, I get an Unknown Error. I can't find anything in the
log files.

The only thing I can think of is to see if deleting some of the user's content
to bring them down below 100MB would allow me to then get to their quota
settings page.

- why did SharePoint allow this user to exceed their 100MB personal quota?
- why is the error occuring that won't even let a farm administrator change
their quota?
- is there an stsadm command that would let me bypass this error in the Central
Admin GUI and increase this user's site quota?

Deleting enough content to bring the usage below the 100MB max allowed me to
then select the user's site  collection and increase  the quota.

My questions still stand however.

AFAIK the upload  porcess only checks MAX Upload Size restriction but
does not check against a site  quota.
