    Hello,

    I'v realised something strange today.

    In a client on my cpanel I see:

    Main Domain a.....a.gr
    Home Directory /home/a******g
    Disk Space Usage 84.79 / ∞ MB

    but when I try to see the disc usage from shell:

    root@ [/home/a******g]# du -sh /home/a*****g/public_html/
    5.7G /home/a*****g/public_html/

    I did realise this when I saw the account's backup file.

    why could this be happening ?

    Are all files in this users account, owned by that user, or nobody?

    yes all the files have owner:group the username of the user.

    - - - Updated - - -

    for example:

    drwxr-xr-x 2 a*****g a*****g 184K Apr 27 2012 swf/

    root@[/home/a*****g/public_html/games]# ll swf | more
    total 5.5G
    drwxr-xr-x 2 a*****g a*****g 184K Apr 27 2012 ./
    drwxr-xr-x 15 a*****g a*****g 4.0K Apr 30 2012 ../
    -rw-r--r-- 1 a*****g a*****g 246K Apr 16 2012 1000.swf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 a*****g a*****g 337K Apr 16 2012 1001.swf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 a*****g a*****g 880K Apr 16 2012 1002.swf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 a*****g a*****g 354K Apr 16 2012 1003.swf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 a*****g a*****g 706K Apr 16 2012 1004.swf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 a*****g a*****g 1.3M Apr 16 2012 1005.swf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 a*****g a*****g 1.1M Apr 16 2012 1006.swf

    Just out of curiosity, what does the Disk Space Usage page in this users account tell you?

    For some strange reason I didn't recieve the notification of the post reply on my email.Anyways.

    The result is very strange:

    a...a.gr.jpg

    I dont understand why it shows 5,8GB in in public_html but only 81,18MB total disk space used.

    Me either, but whatever it is, its in public_html it seems. Down below that area you grabbed a screenshot from is a tree that you can expand public_html and drill down more. I'd head there next if I was you.

    its a folder full with .swf files ,see my 1st post, but what difference would that do? the extention of the files?

    the problem is that cpane isn't counting them.
