[NextCloudPi] What is taking up all my space?

Hey there,
again I need some help… I installed NCP on my RaspberryPi using Berryboot and an external harddrive (WD PiDrive Foundation Edition 375GB). After using about 130 GB of the avaible space, Nextcloud now tells me now, that I have no more space available (130GB of 130GB used). The second number decreased over time (if I remember it right, it started with something like “10GB of 250GB used”). I already raised the user limit to 1TB, that doesnt change anything.
Does anyone know what the problem is here? What other info do you need?


I tried to investigate further into this and could find the following. Does that look okay?
The 2.3 GB of free space correspond to what the Nextcloud-Webpage tells me to be available. But what is taking up all my storage space then? How can I find that out?

What Nextcloud shows as available storage:

@nachoparker, any suggestion?

You see that space has being used. NC used more data, than one User Limit. It contains at least:
User used space + Trash bin + Files Versions + Previews + … . My assumption is that one user (with default NC configuration) with limit e.g. 1 Gb could use around 1,5 Gb of Physical disk space only because of files versions and trash bin. It could use even more, depends on your config.php
