What if 2 file attachments are the same ?

Just wondering, if 2 users upload identical file attachments, does it still take up twice the disk space ?

yes because phpbb will give them unique file names. there is probably nothing to do about this.

Same applies for one user uploading an image twice. You will need to prevent regular users from having permission to attach images if this concerns you that much, or just accept that it's possible to upload duplicates which takes up more disk space than necessary.
