Today we have received a below message for our SPonline environment:

No free space. This site is out of storage space and changes can't be saved. To free up space, delete files you don't need and empty the recycle bin.

  1. I have deleted everything in recycle bin and still receive the message.
  2. Tried to delete list or libraries but it wouldn't let me.
  3. Tried to use PnP/Powershell to force to delete and it wouldn't let me.

Can you please help.
