File storage in Slack

When you upload a file to a channel or direct message, it will be stored in Slack. All PDFs, documents, images, screenshots and audio and video files uploaded to a channel or direct message count towards the file storage limit.

The amount of space available for a workspace varies by plan:

Subscription File storage
Free subscription 5 GB in total for the entire workspace
Pro subscription 10 GB per member
Business+ subscription 20 GB per member
Enterprise Grid subscription 1TB (1,000GB) per member

Tip: The amount of space per member is the total file storage shared across the entire workspace. For example, on a Pro workspace with 50 members, the entire workspace has 500GB of file storage.


If your workspace reaches the limit, we'll let you know. Members can continue to upload files, but older files will be archived automatically to make room for new ones. Members won't be able to view archived files in channels, direct messages or search results, but upgrading your subscription will unarchive any archived files.

For more space, you can delete older files or upgrade your plan.

Note: files shared via apps like Box, Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive do not count towards the file storage limit.
