IsolatedStorageFile.Quota Property

Gets a value that represents the maximum amount of space available for isolated storage.

Namespace:  System.IO.IsolatedStorage
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Syntax

'Declaration
Public ReadOnly Property Quota As Long
public long Quota { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int64
The limit of isolated storage space, in bytes.

Exceptions

Exception Condition
IsolatedStorageException

The isolated store has been removed.

Isolated storage is disabled.

Remarks

This property obtains the value from the store's associated quota group. The initial quota is 1 MB to be shared by all of the domain's applications.

Use the AvailableFreeSpace property to determine whether you need to increase the quota by using the IncreaseQuotaTo method.

Examples

The following example checks the quota size. This example is part of a larger example provided for IsolatedStorageFile class.

' Assumes an event handler for the MouseLeftbuttonUp
' event is defined for a control named 'IncreaseQuota'
' In the control's XAML: MouseLeftButtonUp="IncreaseQuota_OnLeftMouseButtonUp"
Public Sub IncreaseQuota_OnClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As MouseEventArgs)
    ' Obtain an isolated store for an application.
    Try
        Using store As IsolatedStorageFile = IsolatedStorageFile.GetUserStoreForApplication()
            ' Request 5MB more space in bytes.
            Dim spaceToAdd As Int64 = 5242880
            Dim curAvail As Int64 = store.AvailableFreeSpace
            ' If available space is less than
            ' what is requested, try to increase.
            If (curAvail < spaceToAdd) Then
                ' Request more quota space.
                If Not store.IncreaseQuotaTo((store.Quota + spaceToAdd)) Then
                    ' The user clicked NO to the
                    ' host's prompt to approve the quota increase.
                Else
                    ' The user clicked YES to the
                    ' host's prompt to approve the quota increase.
                End If
            End If
        End Using
    Catch Ex As IsolatedStorageException
