    I have this problem, check the picture:

    [​IMG]

    In a server with 100+ account this is the only wrong, its showing 165MB used, but the account its using only 2MB for real.

    I already try fixing quotas and the problem persist. What can i look now?

    EXTRA INFO:

    Found some folders in /home/.cpan owned by this user account.

    ie:

    drwxr-xr-x 6 dsa8985 dsa8985 4.0K Jul 28 2007 YAML-Syck-0.94

    Most of the folders inside .cpan are owned by root, all listed here by my client (dsa8985) and some others by another clients.

    Why my clients owns those folders outside his home dir? Can i clean all .cpan content?

    First, be very careful when changing permissions on system files. If you don't know what you are doing, do not attempt this.

    If you do, then you will need to search the system for files outside their home directory that are owned by that user, and then reset them to the proper username. This will resolve the incorrect space issue.

    The /home/.cpan directory can be safely removed.

    There are bunch of cpan modules within that folder. They're not needed? what are all those files for?

    and what about /home/.cpcpan?
