Using the Disk Usage Viewer in cPanel

This demo assumes you've already logged in to cPanel

Let's take a look at the Disk Usage Viewer

1) Click Disk Usage Viewer

2) Let's click the Show File Sizes as bytes option to see more detail

From here you can see how much storage space is being used by each directory and sub-directory in your account

All file sizes have been converted from megabytes to bytes

3) Now click the Increase Depth button

4) Click the Decrease Depth  button

5) Click the Show Top Level option

As you can see, there are numerous ways to view the amount of storage space being used by your directories

This is useful in determining which directories are using the most storage space

This is the end of the tutorial.  Once you know where all your storage space is being used, you can decide whether you need to delete some files, or upgrade to a larger plan
