Note: The maximum file size that can be uploaded to the CMS file space is 25 Megabytes.
File storage in CMS is limited. Increased storage allocations are not currently available. Default quotas are
Primary site in workspace
Secondary site(s) in workspace
400Mb (each has its own folder)
Pages stored in CMS do not count toward this file quota. Only uploaded files like graphics and PDF files are included in the calculation of the fileadmin disk usage.
A storage usage mini-report is available by activating the Filelist module. The usage information is listed at the top of the file list frame.
The summary contains three parts
- [cms]: - the name of your file mount. This will match your site's address segment
- contains 17 Files, 1.6 Mbytes. - a summary of the current folder. This will help you identify large folders
- Quota: 29 MB/300 MB used - a summary of the total quota usage for all files and folders for the site. Hover your mouse cursor over the summary to see the usage as a percentage.
Attempts to upload files over the quota limit will result in an upload error.

In the event you want to reorganize files in the TYPO3 Filelist module, you may do so. However, be cautioned that moving files will break links to the file (in its old location) if any such links exist. Generally speaking, a "there are references to this item" warning will be displayed if any such links exist, though this is not guaranteed.
To move a file into another folder
- Open the Filelist module
- Optionally check the Show clipboard checkbox to assist with seeing any elements (including files) that are in the clipboard
- Click the button for the file you want to move
- The cut button will change to indicate that the item has already been cut and you will see the file name listed in the clipboard
- Open the folder where the file should be pasted into
- Any locations where the clipboard item can be pasted, a (pastes into current folder) or (paste into the named folder) button will appear. Click the button to paste the item in the selected folder
- Click OK in the confirmation dialog that appears
- The element is now in the new location (no longer in the old location)
