A typical sales cycle consists of multiple numbers of contacts, emails, opportunities, accounts, proposals, quotes, and also maintains a lot of documents of different types & needs including files, notes, and attachments. Often it becomes challenging for a sales rep to manage this much information of a single customer. And there are many such customers and information related to them which each sales rep has to deal with. Same with service agents as well in order to deliver seamless customer service. To keep all this information, you need a lot of storage space as well. Salesforce offers different types of storage options to keep specific types of information.

All the files that are generated while using the CRM automatically get stored in a dedicated file storage space. This includes files generated by standard users, community users, files from 3rd-party AppExchange apps connected with the CRM, Chatter files, and other custom Salesforce apps. The default file storage space is limited in Salesforce as it is primarily not a storage system. Once users run out of their allocated file storage, either they need to buy additional storage from Salesforce or need to find another way to optimize the existing storage. 

Are you among the customers who are still upgrading expensive additional file storage space from Salesforce? To help you prevent paying high Salesforce file storage costs, XfilesPro offers an advanced file management application to manage a large number of Salesforce files with ease. With XfilesPro, Salesforce customers can automatically move Salesforce files to any external document storage system of their choice. This could be cloud document storage systems like SharePoint, Amazon S3, OneDrive, Google Drive, or On-prem storage systems.

Before learning more about XfilesPro, let’s see how much file storage space you get in Salesforce & what are the costs associated with it.  

How much file storage space do you have in Salesforce?

Currently, Salesforce offers 10GB of file storage per org for Contact Manager, Group, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, and Unlimited Editions. The Essential edition is allocated 1GB of file storage per org. Orgs are additionally allocated file storage based on the number of standard user licenses. In Enterprise, Performance, and Unlimited Editions, orgs are allocated 2 GB of file storage per user license. Contact Manager, Group, Professional Edition orgs are allocated 612 MB per standard user license, which includes 100 MB per user license plus 512 MB per license for the Salesforce CRM Content feature license. An org with fewer than 10 users will receive a total of 1 GB of per-user file storage rather than a 100 MB per-user license.

What is the file size limit in Salesforce?

The file size that is usually seen, is the 2 GB upper limit. In fact, this is the maximum size allowed by the Salesforce system. Since Salesforce has always been integrating with other applications, it should fit all those limits where they are applied. For instance, if there is a 10 MB limit to the file sizes in Google Drive. In a similar manner, the 5 MB single file or the 10 MB file for attachment should not necessarily be a limit by Salesforce, but one must adhere to it.
