    Hello :)

    Typically, usage displayed under the "Other" category is for files not contained within your home directory. You can confirm this by checking the disk space usage in an account's home directory. EX:

    Code:
    du -sh /home/username
    If it's less usage than reported for the account disk space usage in cPanel or WHM, then it indicates there are files owned by this user elsewhere on the system. This could include mailing lists, or simply files owned by the account elsewhere on the system. You may want to contact your hosting provider to have them verify where the usage is from if you do not have root access to the system.

    Thank you.
