Data type



To get: quota& = notesDatabase .SizeQuota

To set: notesDatabase .SizeQuota = quota&


The size quota for a database specifies the amount of a disk space that the server administrator is willing to provide for that database; therefore, the SizeQuota property can only be set by a script that has administrator access to the server on which the database resides. The size quota is not the same as the size limit that a user specifies when creating a new database.

If there is no size quota for the database, this property returns 0.

In the Administration Client, use the "Set Quotas" tool to set the size quota.

The database does not need to be open to use this property.
