Look at the stats panel in the forum admin control panel.
It'll tell you how much the attachments and database are occupying.

Maybe you have a cache folder that hasn't cleared.
I've got a site with over 200k posts and one with nearly 500k posts and the databases for those are not even 1Gb each.

Your os is most likely between 5 and 10gb alone, so that just leaves a few gb for other forum related files.

From that screenshot your board is taking up almost none of the space.
The rest will be as Paul says above. So although it looks like you have very little space left, it's actually loads.

You can also run the following Linux command in the root folder of your phpBB and see exactly how much it weighs:

Code: Select all

du -sh * | sort -rh
