    Hello,

    Hoping someone will have an idea on this one. I have paid for ftp access on my Geocities website. Plenty of room and I'm not even close to exceeding it.

    When I try to upload a whole bunch of files at once, about midway through, it stops, telling me that I have used all my subscribed disk space on the server.

    The catch is that I haven't. In fact, if I quit Fetch, wait a few minutes, and start where I left off, I can upload some more files. The end result? I have to do large batch uploads in small segments to avoid this error.

    Anyone know why the server would be returning this message when it's not true?

    Have you asked Geocities about this?

    I'd be interested to see the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after you get the error message.

    Thanks,

    Hi Jim,

    Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, the support offered by Geocities is virtually nonexistent, although I'm still working on finding a live person there (and working on moving my site elsewhere)!

    Looking at the transcript, it appears that each of these small files (300 to 600 bytes each) is taking up much more than its share of my quota as it is uploaded. Why it "settles" later and my usage goes back to normal, I don't know. Here's the end of my latest upload so you can see what was happening:

    I'm afraid that this is a GeoCities issue. The server messages indicate that the grableb.html file reduced your "space remaining" measure by 150,000 bytes, but I gather that the file should only take up a few hundred bytes. It's common for file sizes to be rounded up to the nearest 512 or 1024 bytes, but that doesn't explain the difference you're seeing. I would recommend reporting the problem to Geocities, and if necessary paying for extra space.

    Thanks,

    Hi-

    I had a similar issue with my web host. Turned out it had nothing to do with space but instead it was the number of files I was uploading. Even though I have puchased 300 megs of space my host would only allow me to load 12,000 files. I am a photographer and I needed to be able to upload more files. They changed it for me and now I am ok.

    Thanks for the responses! I cancelled my Geocities account and went with a "real" hosting company. And it works like a charm now. :)
