    Your Microsoft storage usage (Capacity) can now be checked in the Power Platform Admin Center (under Analytics on the left-hand side)

    Microsoft have added the following capacity analytics reporting features:

    • The new Capacity page is available in the Power Platform Admin Center.
    • Admins can visualize the data stored in Database, Files, and Logs.
    • Entitlement information is added to the report to help customers understand the available capacity of the tenant level.
    • Existing customers get entitlements for new types of capacity (File and Log) but are not impacted by the licensing change until renewal.


    Why am I no longer getting Microsoft storage notifications?
    Microsoft have disabled email notifications with the move to the new storage model. Review the Capacity page to monitor your usage.

    I’m an existing Microsoft customer and have not purchased the new offers. The capacity report indicates I’m overusing the Database/File/Log. What should I do?
    If Database, you should not exceed the available Database capacity. Please consider freeing storage space or purchase more storage capacity.

    If File and Log, then there is no immediate action required. At renewal, you can use this report to get the right amount of capacity for Database, File, and Log.

    I’m an existing Microsoft customer and my renewal is coming up. Will I be impacted?
    Customers who renew existing subscriptions can choose to continue to transact using the existing offers for a certain period of time.

    Which environments are counted in the capacity report?
    Default, Production, and Sandbox environments are counted for consumption. The trial, and Preview, environments are not counted.

    Further details can be found in this Microsoft Common Data Service storage capacity article.
