Hello Katie,

When you deleted the datasets, did you also delete them permanently (purge them)? If you view the history (and all histories) under history menu's option "Saved Histories", the total size will be noted, which can give you an idea about where the data in your account is located.


Use the history menu's option "Include Deleted Datasets" to view your deleted datasets, to see the status. From here you can permanently delete them individually by using the links in each. Or, you can permanently delete all deleted datasets in one step by using the option "Purge Deleted Datasets". Examining hidden datasets is also recommended if you still have data that is not accounted for.

More about Delete vs Permanently Delete is in our wiki here:
http://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Learn/Managing%20Datasets#Delete_vs_Delete_Permanently

Remember that it can take some time for the database to update the usage statistics in the web interface after permanently deleting data. This should be less than an hour, and usually much quicker.

Looking for data this way solves almost all disk usage issues, but please let us know if you need more help,

Hi,

I am having an issue with disk space. I had some problems with loading datasets and ended up deleting a few that had errors. Now things are fine, except that my disk space says 90% is being used, yet I only have about 70 GB of data right now. Please help!

Thanks!
Katie
