    I have a user where their disk usage is showing around 170MB higher than it should. Running quota -v username gives the following

    Code:
    Disk quotas for user XXXXX (uid 563):
         Filesystem  blocks   quota   limit   grace   files   quota   limit   grace
          /dev/sda1   36364  102400  102400            2327       0       0
    
    The user has around 700KB in mysql databases and doing a find on the username and group shows no odd files. Any suggestions on what may be wrong? I have run /scripts/fixquotas several times!

    Did you run the find on /backup/cpbackup files if that does exist as well, since those backup files may end up owned by the user.

    cPanelTristan,

    I have also checked the backups and nothing is there, the backups are store remotely and then removed. Anywhere else I should be looking?

    After switching from an RV skin to x3 I can now see that it is a mailing list that is using this disk space. I didn't realise that the RV skins didn't report on everything. Thanks for you help and hopefully this will assist others
