SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have users getting the Site Collection Quota exceeded error message in SP2010. I have increased the limit in Central Admin to 80gb out of which only 5gb are being used. BUT they are still getting this error? Is there something I need to reset before the change takes effect?

I have no idea where else to change the quota limit. I have changed it for all of our site collections and MySites as well so I'm not sure why the error still shows up.

Thanks!

EDIT: This is what I got from the Logs: (not sure how to paste this in a better format)

The content DB in which your site collection resides is in read-only mode, you need to change it back to read/write mode.

For example,

Here's a post that can help you putting it back to read & write state.

Actually mine says No under Database Read-Only and I have checked and there are 90gb of free space on the database server –  Tudor Hofnar Mar 21 '13 at 18:20

Not sure exactly why it was happening but I think it is fixed now. I had to go to Configure Quotas and Locks and change the Current Quota Template to Individual then select Ok, then come back and switch back to the Template I created. I guess this is what it needed to refresh and use the updated quota?

Not sure but it seems to be working now. I will monitor for a few days and close the question then.
