I am not an experienced sharepoint user, but can get around sites already created. I am getting emails to advise me that our 500MB quota limit has been reached, but when i use sharepoint 3.0 central administration, on the site collection quotas and locks page, i attempt to find the page which was sent in the email, i am advised the error message "no site was found that begins with http://etc etc. All the sites have been created and central admin was already running on the server. Can anyone advise please ?

couple of things to check.

  • check the url of the site collection.
  • go to the Central admin > application management > configure the quota and locks
  • on the top right hand side click the dropdown and new pop up, Select the web app 1st then the site collection.
  • Now you will see the quota of site collection and adjust it accordingly.
