Problem description

The ongoing backup job suddenly stops with the following error:

Insufficient Storage
User quota limit reached. Please contact your IT Administrator.

Cause

This issue occurs when the backup data size exceeds the allocated storage quota for the user.

User quota is the maximum amount of data that a user can back up or share from the user's devices. The user quota also defines the maximum data that the backup folders and inSync Share folder can contain for a user across all devices.

For example, consider a user who has a quota of 2 GB. The user backs up data from Desktop and Documents folders and also shares data. At any point in time, the total data in the Desktop, Documents, and inSync Share folders cannot exceed 2 GB. If the data in these folders exceeds 2 GB, the backup operation fails.

Error in the inSync client logs:
