So yesterday I was trying to fix an error in a base that has about 20000 columns without any files or pictures. I tried to fix the error by copying a table within the base with around 1000 entries, then changing stuff to see if it worked and deleting the copied table after that. I did that several times until seatable told me that I reached the maximum size of 200 MB (even though I had the same base as I had at the beginning of the day).
I then deleted some data, cleaned the whole base of whatever I could spare but I still get the error, even though now the base should be considerably smaller than before (where I did not get that error). Also when I copy the base, the copy works fine (so no 200 MB I guess).
So my question is, is there some kind of internal memory or cache that I overloaded with my behaviour? Can this be cleaned up? And where can I see the size of my base so this won’t happen again?
I am using the seatable cloud within a chrome browser, hope I posted all informations needed!
This is a missunderstanding, I don’t use any files in my base/table as I wrote in my first post, sorry if that was unclear. The problem appeared just by copying and deleting tables with ordenary data fields (string/int/functions) within a base.
First thing you should do is to take a look in the base status. This will tell you how many rows you have in your base.
This said: I am pretty sure that you have files in your base. Without files, it is quite hard to hit the 200MB limit. At the risk of repeating myself: Have a look in the file management if there are any files.
Dear @daniel.pan, so 200 MB is only for data in the rows? Can we upload “unlimited” pictures and documents to the base?
This would be great, as I am currently try to create an Intranet page for company information with SeaTable and use the picture gallery widely for optimal visibility.
@rdb As I mentioned before, I dont have any files in the base. Also no apps, statistics or whatsoever.
@daniel.pan I did as you said and did not log in for 4 days, but the problem is still the same. I do have daily automations running though, I guess I have to turn them off as well and wait again for a day or two?
Unfortunately waiting for two days did not work / change anything at all. Any other ideas what I could do? I mean I could just build everything around the copied version, as it seems to be fine, but I’d rather find a way to fix the “old” one …
