Disk Usage



This interface displays information about your files, your directories, and how you use your account's disk space. This helps you to manage your disk space quota use because it displays files and directories that use large amounts of hard disk space. 


Disk Usage

This interface displays the following disk space usage summaries:

  • Files that your home directory contains.
  • Files that exist in hidden subdirectories.
  • Mailing lists that Mailman manages.
  • Files that your home directory does not contain.

Access File Manager

Click any of the listed directories to open the appropriate subdirectory in the File Manager interface (cPanel >> Home >> Files >> File Manager).

  • Most files occupy slightly more disk space than their actual size. For example, a 300-byte file may occupy 4 KB of actual disk space. 
  • The disk space usage information does not indicate how much space the directory itself uses. Typically, directories themselves occupy a negligible amount of disk space.
  • The system includes MySQL® database size and PostgreSQL® database size in an account’s disk usage calculation. However, the system does not enforce the account’s disk space quota limit if a database’s size causes the account to exceed its limit. 
  • The figures that this interface displays may not reflect recent changes in your account's disk space.
