About excess homepage usage

How homepage space usage is calculated

In order for your homepage to function properly, each file is assigned 4 Kilobytes of space to be used for indexing, directories, etc. Therefore, the amount of space used to host your homepage is in fact larger than the combined size of all your files. Note: 1 Megabyte is equal to 1,024 Kilobytes.
