Hi,

 

There's a really big difference in what File Manager says is used vs the Disk Usage (screenshots attached). Could anyone tell me why this is and how I can free up space? Thank you!

The disk usage tool shows you the size of the directory and all of the contents of the directory. The file manager shows you just the size of the file. Directories are files that take up only about 4 KB on their own if they are empty. If they have anything inside them the file manager will still show them as 4 KB, but the disk usage tool will show the size of the directory plus everything inside it.

 

You're using about 845 MB out of your 1000 MB limit right now.
