Go on, have a guess
please let me know right away
You cannot expect instant help from a community of people offering to help in their own free time - nearly everyone who comes here has an urgent problem and you should be patient.

To answer your question - if you're not interested in tracking FTP bandwidth, then you can cleardown the xferlog. To do so you need to do the following on a Linux server:

cat /dev/null > /var/log/xferlog
/etc/init.d/syslog restart
