Exceeded daily usage quota when using ODK Briefcase

What is the problem? Please be detailed.

I get an error message indicating that daily usage quota has been exceeded. I am using ODK Briefcase 1.11.3 to pull data. I was confident that this issue would not arise if I was using briefcase.

My dataset has several repeat groups and also allows for taking a lot of photos.

Any suggestions of what my options are now? Is there a way to only pull data without photo attachments using ODK Briefcase?


What ODK tool and version are you using? And on what device and operating system version?

ODK Briefcase 1.11.3

What steps can we take to reproduce the problem?

What you have you tried to fix the problem?

Anything else we should know or have? If you have a test form or screenshots or logs, attach here.

Hi @Louis_Omoya!

Use of Briefcase has nothing to do with quota. That is, regardless of whether or not you are downloading data directly from Aggregate or using Briefcase to download that data, you are using quota. Briefcase can use less quota because it doesn't data that already exists.

I'd recommend you:

  1. Enable billing so you can get your data off
  2. Pull all the data to Briefcase as a backup
  3. Manually delete the data on Aggregate you aren't using
  4. Consider updating your form to scale down images.

Dear @yanokwa,

Thank you for the recommendation,
