    Hello,

    I am new to cPanel, and have an issue with my disk quotas. Users cannot access FTP because it appears the account is over quota.


    General account information:
    ...
    Disk usage 183.91 Megabytes
    Disk space available -83.91 Megabytes


    But the weird thing is, when I look at the cPanel Disk Usage viewer, I get:

    Directory Space Used
    public_html/data 401.37 Meg


    could this be a problem solved with fixquota? I haven't ran that yet.



    Below is the report from /usr/sbin/repquota -auv

    *** Report for user quotas on device /dev/hda3
    Block grace time: 7days; Inode grace time: 7days
    Block limits File limits
    User used soft hard grace used soft hard grace
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ...
    ftpaccount-- 8 102400 102400 4 0 0
    ...​

    Please help ...

    Bit of a newbie ... didn't know if fixquota could potentially cause problems with my other 30 (fully functional) accounts.

    I guess I just don't have faith in automated fixes. Is there any danger?
