Hi,

I have a little problem with my host.
The host say's I have used 129 MB.
But I am sure that I only have used 34 MB.
I went to the WS_FTP program and I checked
there and it was 35091 KB so that's 34 MB.
Is there an other way to be sure how much MB
I have used??

Thank You

just what are you running on your site. if you have a mysql database they could include that into your total space.(just a guess) are you running a forum?

I was thinking the exact same thing.

Other things they are almost certainly counting towards your quota:
- mySQL databases
- E-mail storage
- Website Statistics Data Files (different than Raw Logs)

Some things that they may be counting:
- Raw Logs (take up a good deal of space)

If you have SSH access, you should navigate to your home directory (as far up as you're allowed to go) and type "du -chx". This will give you a more comprehensive measure of your disk space, but you'll still need to add in the space taken up by databases. Raw logs are also probably not stored in your home directory.

I am sure that you have FrontPage Extension enabled and it is filling with its trash files everyday into your web space
Look to the folders as " _vti "
