Account-Wide File Storage Limit
Files people submit with their entries are stored in your account and count towards your total storage limit. To see how much storage you're currently using, check your Account Usage in the Account Manager. To increase your file storage limit, upgrade your plan .
Once you reach your file storage limit, people trying to upload a file won't be able to—instead they'll see an error message.
They can still submit the rest of their entry, as long as the file upload field isn't required.
