Status Planning to Implement
Workspace Admin Client

Display human readable file sizes in Admin Client

Under the "Files" tab in the Admin Client, file sizes are displayed as Bytes. If the files are large, numbers will be displayed in scientific notation.

Both Bytes and Scientific Notation are hard to read for humans.

In practical use by humans, a garbled number means no number, so humans may not know some of their file sizes.


  • Bytes, as a measure of unit, are of no practical use in the context of database file size. MB is the smallest unit, that makes sense in that context.

  • Scientific notation should never be used in the context of an Admin Client. This format is both hard to read for humans and for machines (i.e. parsers).

  • Display file sizes in MB rather than Bytes per default

  • Add configurable option, whether file sizes should be displayed always with a fixed unit (e.g. Bytes or KB or MB), or adaptable unit (display small files in MB, large files in GB, etc)

  • Display file size in Bytes under Advanced Properties of a specific file

    This is an interesting experience you have. I have not seen this issue. On the file tab of the admin client it shows me file sizes up tens of GB. I just haven't seen a file that is greater than 99GB as of yet in my client. I see file sizes such as 64,887,121,999.

    Yes, simply use the same notation as the size in the Quota and Warning columns in the mail View. Bizarrely the same view shows 2 different formats.
