"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

    Thank for unblocking the issue but we hit the same problem again with MuseScore https://ci.appveyor.com/project/MuseScore/musescore

    Hi, original poster here (can't login nor retrieve my account dunno why)

    It was working well until the same error popped again: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/DrLynix/nazaraengine/build/master-rev75

    Can't AppVeyor just discard old artifacts when it runs out of space?

    Thank you.

    @Lynix Retention mechanism is still in not ready. We unblocked you the same way for now.

    Same problem here with https://ci.appveyor.com/project/sjmgarnier/ropencvlite. Is there something I can do to reduce the size of the artifacts to avoid this problem in the future? Or is it just because my program is too large (it compiles OpenCV as part of the process)? Thanks for your help!

    Currently blocking the following repositories.


    We are attempting to get the size of these artifacts down, but it may be a while before a fix is in place. For unblocking, how long does this last?

    @Yuzu unblocked, it will last until you reach your next limit (10000 Mb now). Hopefully by that time we will expose self-cleanup. As last resort will will bump it again.

    Anyone able to help? Still in a trial period but not being able to run any builds for the day is a bit of a kicker for my case to the business to be paying for this next week.

    Matt, you are unblocked for now. Going forward this limit does not apply to paid accounts.

    I do not at all need these artifacts to be stored on AppVeyor. Is there any way to push artifacts to deployment targets without having them uploaded to AppVeyor? I know you say you're working on it but I'd rather not have my builds blocked by this in the future. It's not a feature I use.

    Same problem, account: GitSquared
    Failing builds on GitSquared/edex-ui.

    Any ETA on automated or self-cleanup?

    GitSquared you are unblocked. No specific ETA yet, but this obviously should not take too long.

    Hey Ilya,

    Can you please unblock my account (brianlheim) as well? Don't mean to bug you, just want to make sure you didn't miss my request above!

    @brianlheim sorry I missed you first message. It should be good now. And yes, we are planning to have some default retention policy which you do not have to configure too.
