Does documents version history cost storage?

Occasional Contributor

We have allot of SharePoint sites and documents. Version history is enabled in all document libraries. I am just wondering if all the document version history is playing a role in the total storage of the SharePoint site. Who knows?

See Microsoft's response to the following post

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/633380/out-of-sharepoint-storage.html

"3.Delete previous versions of files.
Site Settings > Site Collection Administration > Storage Metrics > click library > Version History > Version History or Delete Draft Versions"

This suggests that versions do count. Not clear if they count 1 on 1 or if only the actually used storage for that version is charged.
