Encountering the “quota exceeded” error in SharePoint typically happens when you’ve reached the storage limit set for your site. To resolve this, you can either increase the quota if possible or free up space by deleting unnecessary files.

Now, I will tell you how to increase the storage quota limit manually. To do this, follow the below steps:

1. To solve the SharePoint quota exceeded error, log in to the SharePoint Online Admin Center. Click on the Settings, then on the Settings page, click Site storage limits.

4. After clicking, the Edit storage limit page will open. Now, set the maximum storage for this site according to your needs. In my case, it was previously set to 1000, but I’m increasing it to 2000. Don’t forget to check the ‘Allow notifications’ box. Then click Save.
