"Maximum allowed artifact storage size of 1000 Mb will be exceeded."

It's been a few weeks that every of my AppVeyor build fails with the error "Maximum allowed artifact storage size of 1000 Mb will be exceeded." which I don't understand because the artifact weight actually 60MiB (as shown on 7-Zip log).

Here's an example of failing build: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/DrLynix/nazaraengine/build/master-rev10/job/qnv73ipqxry176ft

I initialy though I exceeded some total artifact storage quota and deleted the AppVeyor project then reenabled it, but nothing changed.

What's the problem here?

Thanks in advance

    Our repo hit the limit again (https://ci.appveyor.com/project/Nickito12/etterna/build/

    Do we have to do something to fix it?

    Thanks in advance, Nick.

    Original poster here (looks like my account doesn't exist anymore), still having problems with https://ci.appveyor.com/project/DrLynix/nazaraengine.

    Could you delete all artifacts and/or increase the limit? Thank you.

    We are getting "Maximum allowed artifact storage size of 50000 Mb will be exceeded."

    Can we clean all artifacts older than a week/month?


    with the powershell function we just got
    "Push-AppveyorArtifactInternal : The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error.
    At C:\Program Files\AppVeyor\BuildAgent\Modules\build-worker-api\build-worker-api.psm1:209 char:2

    @Hannah it's been bumped to 70 GB. Hope that helps. We are still working on reclaiming the same from deleted builds though.

    We're running into this same issue on https://ci.appveyor.com/project/oni/oni/build/job/ghb8g3ry6clvr3ik any chance we could get the limit raised?

    Can you clear the artifacts please ?

    Btw is there a way to automatically delete artifacts on AppVeyor since they are sent to GitHub for our project ?

    Could you please increase our limits to resolve this issue?
    Thank you!
