    Go on, have a guess
    There is a cache used by default that can be up to 15 minutes out of date - could that be the issue? If not, then your quotas may need repairing using:

    /scripts/fixquotas

    If your server is a VPS, you probably need to speak to your VPS provider.

    Well they never change until you run the fixquotas script then they are up to date until stuff changes again then it is out of date, I am on a reseller plan but I am helping the host fix this problem because I don't want to run out of space and then be charged for it.

    Well, your host should really be posting here then ;)

    Sounds like quotas are not setup correctly on the partitions being used for user space. They need to check that /etc/fstab has the mountpounts correctly configured to use usrquota for each one that holds user data. Unless, as I mentioned before, it's a VPS in which case the issues are completely different.

    Such problems can also happen on old/custom kernels that don't have quotas correctly built into them.
