Introduced in 1.3 Release is the ability for site Administrators to track digital object storage per repository. Storage limits may be placed on individual repositories by in-house server capacity or on hosted server agreements. If you are utilizing a multi-institutional / portal instance of ICA-AtoM you will need to check with the site Administrator to learn the digital object storage limitations.

Digital storage indicator is shown on the View archival repository page
