Storage is divided into two categories: data storage and file storage. File storage includes files in attachments, the Documents tab, the Files tab, the File field, Salesforce CRM Content, Chatter (including user photos), and Site.com assets. Data storage includes the following:
  • Accounts
  • Article types (format: “[Article Type Name]”)
  • Article type translations (format: “[Article Type Name] Version”)
  • Campaigns
  • Campaign Members
  • Cases
  • Case Teams
  • Contacts
  • Contracts
  • Custom objects
  • Email messages
  • Events
  • Forecast items
  • Google docs
  • Ideas
  • Leads
  • Notes
  • Opportunities
  • Quotes
  • Quote Template Rich Text Data
  • Solutions
  • Tags: Tag applications
  • Tags: Unique tags
  • Tasks
Data storage and file storage are calculated asynchronously, so if you import or add a large number of records or files, your organization’s storage usage will not be updated immediately.
