Today we’ll look at how to force recalculate / refresh your cPanel’s accounts disk space usage. This can be quite annoying, at times the usage does not update even though you’ve freed up space and it should.
There is a fairly straight forward way to force cPanel to recalculate how much disk space you’re using.
Login to your cPanel account and click on File Manager
Next, you’ll have to enable hidden files and folders. To do this, click on the settings button on the top right.
In the window that pops up click on Show Hidden Files (dotfiles). Click
Save and you should not be able to see hidden files and folders.
Navigate into the .cpanel directory
Now rename the directory datastore
That’s it, you’re done.
