Every user on the LON-CAPA system has a quota of 20 MB of portfolio space. Each file you add reduces your quota. However, portfolio submitted files can be modified by the grader and then  uploaded back to the student, this will apear as a new 'version' of the file for the student but does not count against their quota.

There is also a group portfolio with a quota that is set by the group creator (typically a course coordinator). Group portfolios have the same functionalities as student portfolio. The main difference being that a number of people have access to group portfolios. It may be the case that some group members have different access to other group members. Once again, this is controlled by the group creator.
