Knowledge Article Number 000212201
Description How is the Storage Usage of a user is calculated. Is it based on Owner of the records or the Creator?
Resolution Storage Usage is calculated based on the ownership of the records.

For Example: Before doing this check the 'Used Data Space' in the User record of User A (Example User). 
Now, Create couple of records in any object and change the ownership to User A
Now, check the Used Data Space of User A, you will see an increase on this field. 

So, the Used Data space is calculated based on the Record ownership but not Record creator.

Also, the 'Top User by Data Storage Usage' (Data Management --> Storage usage) is also calculated based on this field.
