Our users like Confluence! They want to put everything in there, including PDFs and images. Sometimes these attachments are bigger than the default 10MB limit. Besides making the DB larger, what is the drawback to increasing the attachment size limit?
Adding attachments does not have to make the DB much bigger. References to attachments are stored in the database (in the ATTACHMENTS table), but the data for the attachments themselves can be stored in either the database or in the file system. I would go with filesystem for most use cases.
Go to the main Administration panel and click "Attachment Storage". Click the Edit button, and then select "Locally in Confluence home directory".
So, in that scenario, the only downside I can think of is just network usage since storage space is neglible.
