    This is viewable on a per user bases in the Admin portal

    Monitor => Server Statistics => Server Host Name => Mailbox Quota

    Also be more specific about which ZCS version you are on. There are 4 releases in the 8.0 series.

    You may have old ldap backups taking up a significant portion of space on the drive. You can look at /opt/zimbra/data/ldap for old db backups taken prior to upgrade.

    Quanah we dont use the ldap feature at all, but i will still look into that. Secondly when i tried lytledd suggestion.. the server froze, left the machine for about 1hr and nothing came up...all email clients lost connection to the server.. my putty terminal was froze as well. I had to reboot the server manually to get things back to normal.

    Interesting. I'm not sure what you mean by you don't use the "ldap feature". The LDAP component that ships with Zimbra is a required component, you can't run zimbra without it. You can ignore my suggestion if you like, but it may be the source of some significant disk space usage from past upgrades, depending on the size of your installation, and how badly the ldap specific bugs in 8.0.0, 8.0.1, and 8.0.2 were triggered in you environment

    What you are looking for are directories other than config, accesslog, or mdb.

    I.e, if you have mdb.<number> or hdb.<number> or mdb.old or hdb.bak, etc. I.e., the only directories that should exist at the top level of /opt/zimbra/data/ldap in 8.0 are:
    Code:
    config
    accesslog
    mdb
    "accesslog" will only exist on a master.

    Old mdb directories (depending on release) can be up to 85 GB in size, due to some bugs in the early (8.0.0 through 8.0.2) releases.
