Disk space and Hard disk quota. What is the difference?
Posted by Sinan Esen on 20 April 2015 02:02 PM

Domain Disk Space:

Indicates how much disk space is used by the whole domain. It is counted by Plesk statistics utility and includes amount of disk space taken by web pages, mail accounts, databases and other domain data.  This cannot be hard, because it is made from different parts that were listed above. If a domain exceeds "Domain disk space" limit, then both the server administrator and the domain owner receive notifications about it. 

Hard Disk Space:

Hard disk space is a file system feature and it limits how much disk space can be taken by files which are owned by a specific system account (either domain FTP user or webuser or subdomain FTP user).  This file system quota cannot be exceeded and if the limit is reached, the system user will not be able to create files anymore but error "no more space left on device" will appear.
