You can use the options in the Disk Usage Viewer to control what is displayed in the viewer. Through the options, you can navigate through your site and change the information that is displayed in the viewer.|
Log into your control panel and click on the Disk Usage Viewer.
You will be presented with the following options:
Show Parent Directories (Hide Parent Directories)
This option will show (or hide) all top level directories in your site. When turned on, directories above public_html will be show. When turned off, only subdirectories will be shown.
Show More Directory Depth
This option will show all the subdirectories of the currently listed directories.
Show Less Directory Depth
This option will show all parent directories of the currently listed subdirectories.
Show Top Level
This option will show all files and directories that exist in your home directory.
Hide Small Files (Show Small Files)
This option will hide all files that do not take up a significant amount of disk space. (This can be very useful when trying to find only the files that are using a lot of space on your site). Enabling Show Small Files will go back to showing all files in the current directory, regardless of size.
Show File Sizes as Bytes
This option will show all files sizes in bytes instead of megabytes.
