I have the problem of Versioning on Sharepoint Online.

When I set limits of the version it doesn't allow me to delete those versions. A lot of workers edit this document library and its product a lot of versions. But I want for example leave only 8 of them.

enter image description here

enter image description here And the Sharepoint reach 9 Versions and more. I want to protect disc space.

    Looks like a bug to me. Or an unusual generosity from SPOnline if they don't count that against your storage quota. May 19, 2017 at 17:00

  • Have you changed the number after the 9 versions was created? SharePoint deletes old files only if a new version is added, so simply reduce the number, does not delete a old version.
