How to view disk usage information in cPanel

cPanel's disk usage page enables you to see how much disk space your account's directories and databases are occupying. You can view the information in bar graph format, and you can also sort directories by name and disk space usage.

To view information about your account's disk usage, follow these steps:

Log in to cPanel.
In the FILES section of the cPanel home screen, click Disk Usage:
Bar graphs appear that show relative disk usage by directory:

cPanel - Files - Disk Usage - bar graphs

Beneath the bar graphs, you can view disk usage by directory, in both megabytes (MB) and bytes (there are 1048576 bytes in 1 megabyte):

cPanel - Files - Disk Usage - sort directories

You can sort disk usage information in two ways:
To sort by directory name, click Name.
To sort by size, click Disk Usage.

You can also navigate through the directory hierarchy to view disk usage information for subdirectories:
To view a subdirectory, click the > icon next to the parent directory's name.
