How does creating a new environment with database take up 1GB even though the database is empty?

Hello community,

 

I have another question regarding the environments and database capacity in Power Platform. I was wondering is it true that an environment with an empty database take up 1GB of your entire database capacity?

 

Should it be like this or am I doing something wrong? It feels strange to take up so much capacity by just a few clicks when creating a new environment with nothing inside it.

 

Thanks, 

 

Ville

Hi @VilPel , yes, this is normal for the Dataverse database to take up around 1GB of space.  While you haven't put any data in it there is a lot of stuff going on in Dataverse (it's not just a database) behind the scenes and all of this stuff takes up space.  The database capacity isn't just measuring the data you have put into the database but everything that comes with a new Dataverse database.  Hope that makes sense.
