    Limit-wise, nothing will change. You're still limited to just 100MB of Upload Space storage regardless if you integrate with 3rd party storage platforms or not.

    All File Uploads done on your forms will be stored on your account. If you integrated with Dropbox/Drive, then those files will be saved there too.

    Should you aim to free up more space, all you have to do is delete submissions with associated file uploads. Just keep in mind that when deleting submissions, you will see this warning message (see screenshot below). Please note that deleting submission data is irreversible and will permanently remove it in our servers, including the file uploads on them.

    If you're on a higher tier plan where you have GB's of Upload Space, then what you need to take note of would be the limits per platform (limits with Dropbox and Google Drive). We discussed this in full detail on the guide I'm linking below.
