    Default How to find out disk space usage for Zimbra

    I setup my ZCS server in my house. I'm now looking to move it offsite and I'm trying to setup a server that will be able to handle the storage space. Currently I'm running Zimbra through ESXi. I logged into my server with vSphere to try and see what the VM is using and it says that it is using 203.3GB. I find this really hard to believe. I have about 25 accounts setup in the server (including all the system generated accounts). Of that there are about 5 or 6 accounts that are used heavily. My personal account is by far the heaviest usage and I forward all of my mail to another service as an archiving system. That system shows me at about 7 GB for my account. So if I was to estimate for all 5 accounts I should be about 50GB max.

    I think that maybe I'm either reading the wrong like or maybe I have downloaded some ISO's or something and saved them in the VM. I would like to know how I can check how much disk space is being used by just Zimbra.

    Log into the server, cd /opt/zimbra, run df -h .

    That will tell you total disk usage of whatever partition /opt/zimbra is mounted on. If it is not its own self-contained mountpoint, then this may include all of the OS. In that case, you can:

    cd /opt/zimbra; du -c -h .
