Free Up Server Disk Space

Recently I spent some time clearing up more free space on my server. Here are some notes on things to check when doing so.

Things to check to free up disk space

  • Remove any large unused files (video, backups, etc.)
  • Delete/clear any cached data or files
  • Check email quotas and delete any excess data
  • Check the size of error and access logs
  • Limit the size of log files going forward
  • Check for any unused scripts and/or files
  • Check size of any statistics scripts/files
  • Also can check and optimize database tables

Of course you want to check as much as possible. The main thing I am emphasizing here is not to forget about peripheral functionality such as email, server logs, and statistical data. Such items quickly can chew up a lot of disk space.
