"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

    @ Ilya Finkelshte Thanks a lot. Is there something I should do to remove old artifacts or make sure they get deleted once uploaded to github ? I want to make sure the situation won't arise again !

    Sorry, for now it is only we who can manually fix that. We understand that this is not good, and working on self-serve approach.

    @pirog posting link to the build here and then renaming the account does not help to much. I suppose it is pirog1 now. If yes, it should be unblocked.

    Can you clean artifacts from deleted builds? Thanks

    We'd happily delete all of the old artifacts if we could but we can't so could we get unblocked?

    Is it possible to use "deploy" without having artifacts uploaded to Appveyor server to avoid hitting the 1000Mb limit again?

    Not for now, but we are adding retention policies now and this will be taken care of automatically soon.
