    Hi @Jefferymoore

    To quote wikipedia:
    Each file is associated with an inode and if you have a large number of files you'll also accumulate a large number of inodes. Many hosting providers regulate this as they would disk usage as most systems have a fixed number of inodes.

    Thank you,

    Do the high inodes cause low site speed?

    Hello,

    Not necessarily, but the drive can become full which may cause your site to perform unreliably

    Thank you,
