File storage overloaded with unknown packages


I've noticed that my quota capacity is almost fully used and I tried to trace the reason for this. It appears that I have a lot of packages installed that I have never used before. I.e. contains libraries like quantlib where a single file may weigh over 120mb.

15:35 /home $ du -sh
268M    .

While the user panel shows '87% full – 892.4 MB of your 1.0 GB quota'

Why is that so?

Edit - selenium (chromium) tmp files where the reason for this.. after clearing /tmp/ now everything is back to normal

Files from outside /home/yourusername, /tmp/, and /var/www do not count towards your disk quota -- they are shared by all accounts on PythonAnywhere.
