Viewing disk space and usage for shared account

Often times, you’d find yourself looking for available disk space and usage when using a shared account.

For most service providers, this is served as an unlimited offer. This means that you are promised an unlimited disk space and usage for shared accounts. However, it is important for you, as a user, to keep a tab on usage. This is because at times, your server space may be compromised. This may lead your space or bandwidth to be used by spammers. This may at times also results in accounts being suspended.

In order to avoid such a situation, you may want to keep a tab on disk space and usage for your shared account. Here is how you do it in cPanel:

To view disk space usage

The first step, obviously, is to log in to the cPanel.

Once you’ve logged in, navigate to the files category like in the screen below:
