"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

    +1 on this. My artifact storage filled up faster than expected, and I did not find a way to delete them to make space. Tried deleting previous builds, but that did nothing, I did not want to re-create the project just yet, as I don't have access to the webhook config on github. I have no need to keep the old builds as of now.

    We increased limit to 10000Mb for both your accounts. Sorry for the trouble. We are working on build limits to prevent abuse. Avg numbers are set as defaults. It’s experiment right now, quotas can be adjusted per account per request. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
