Drupal “disk quota per user has been reached” settings

When a certain number of uploads is reached Drupal would show errors, something like this:

“The selected file cannot be attached to this post, because the disk quota of 7 MB has been reached”

Or a message as shown below in picture, when trying to attach a file:

Such kind of file upload quota errors can be fixed by increasing the maximum upload quota per user. It is as simple as doing the following:

In Drupal prior to 5.0, set the appropriate values at Administer -> Settings -> Upload

In Drupal newer or equal to 5.0 do the same as above at Administer -> Site Configuration -> File Uploads.
