One question that pCloud users often ask our support is if the files and folders that others share with them take up space from their own quota.

No, they don’t. We believe in “fare sharing” – that files on other people’s accounts shouldn’t take up your storage space, even when you’re given access to them.

So there’s no need to worry if a friend or colleague shares some big folder with several gigabytes of files inside, because it won’t impact you quota in any way.
