Depending on your SIMS package, the amount of space available here will be different. In this example, we have the SIMS SIlver package, which allocates you 2000 MB of Disk Space. In the image to the right, 2% of this 2000 MB has been used. If you are nearing 100% usage, you may wish to contact us to increase your Disk Space allocation.
