How To Check The File Uses In Your Cpanel

Monitoring file usage and managing inodes in cPanel is crucial to ensure that your server’s resources are efficiently utilized and to prevent exceeding your allocated inode quota. Inodes represent the number of files and directories on your server, and going beyond the limit can lead to various issues. Follow these steps to monitor and manage file usage effectively:

Log in to your cPanel account using your creativeon client area.

Step-by-step Guide:

Once logged in, locate and click on the “File Usage” or “Inode Usage” option in the cPanel dashboard. This will provide you with an overview of your current inode usage.

Open The File usage inodes Folder

In the ‘File Usage‘ section, you’ll find a breakdown of your inode usage by directory. This data helps identify directories with high inode usage. Focus on those directories and search for unnecessary or duplicate files and directories. Delete them using the cPanel file manager or an FTP client, but be cautious to avoid deleting critical files.

Check All the Files Usas Folder

After deleting files, ensure that you empty the trash or recycle bin in cPanel to permanently remove them and free up inodes.Make it a routine to check your inode usage regularly, ideally on a monthly basis. This proactive approach will help prevent inode overages and the associated issues.
