Hello,


Please note that any files owned by the user can be counted towards "other" usage. Files such as mysql databases, log files or any data stored outside their home directory and owned by the user.

You can use a find command to find data outside the user's home directory. The thread here goes over this:

Finding files owned by a user?

If you're unable to find where the data is located, please feel free to open a ticket using the link in my signature.

Thank you,
