I have a large dataset - the fastq is about 87 GB.  I would like to run Galaxy/RepeatExplorer on it, but if I upload it I am told I have exceeded my storage quota.  Would it be possible to increase the limit for me, temporarily, while I run this analysis?  I imagine it will be smaller once I groom and quality trim the data, and convert to fasta.

Where are you running Galaxy? Also, I am not sure which tool you are using.

For the public Main Galaxy instance at, the quota per-dataset is 50 GB and per-account is 250 GB. 

Just a guess, but with common repeat finder tools, you could probably break up the dataset into a few smaller datasets, execute the job on each, then merge the results at the end. When searching known repeats against a sequence datasets, these tend to work sequence-by-sequence, not on datasets as a whole. But that may not be true for the tool you are using, so double check the logic to make sure this is a viable alternative. 

Another option is to move to a local or cloud Galaxy. Given the size of the data, unless you have a very large server and administrative support (or can do the set-up yourself), a cloud Galaxy is a better choice.

Hopefully this helps, Jen, Galaxy team
