Hi,
I deleted some histories permanently, but didn’t give back the storage space. What can I do? Thanks!

Welcome, @Declan0305!

Please try logging out of Galaxy then log back in. This will reset the quota usage quicker.

Eventually, the server will update if you stay logged in, but that is a scheduled task that can sometimes take longer when the server is busy.

FAQ: * The account usage quota seems incorrect

Thanks!

Hi,

I recalculated quota usage for your account at Galaxy Main https://usegalaxy.org. It is at 206.1 GB.

If this is not what you expected, it is likely that you have deleted but not permanently deleted datasets and/or histories in your account. The FAQ for how to check:

Hi,

You are correct, I haven’t deleted them permanently. The FAQ is useful. Thanks!

Bests,
