Hi,
after a restore of my server, i have restored all my accounts also.

Then this operation i have noticed that some accounts occupy more web space than before the restore. Comparing the 2 servers i have, for example:

(OLD SERVER) file.shtml 4 Kb

(NEW SERVER) file.shtml 8 Kb (It's the same file!!)

How is it possibile? What's wrong?

Thank you

Go on, have a guess
Are the disks a different size or architecture? If so, then it'll be the file block size - read up about it on the web since it's no related to cPanel.

Yes, it is. As I said, you'll have to read up about block sizes to understand why you'll have different minimum file sizes.
