    Sorry for reopening this old thread, however as we saw no answers on this question we decided to post the solution for the community.

    When you see message like this:
    140599 Kbytes used (274%) - authorized: 51200 Kb

    It means customer which is logged in has the file called ftpquota in his /home/USER/etc/ directory.

    Either change values (they are in real BYTES, e.g. 1024 bytes = 1 kbyte, 1024*1024 = 1 Mbyte, etc.) or remove file (if you needn't FTP quotas).

    Hope that helps someones' in lost :)

    Yep, it did, thanks!

    Somehow one of the mainaccounts (which normally shouldn't be in this file as per default their FTP quota = account Quota) appeared into this file. The client had more than enough disk space left, so we were a little bit puzzled.

    This hint put us at the right track, so thanks again. Again it's proven useful to update topics with answers :)
