Area             Usage   Quota   Limit  Expires   Usage   Quota   Limit  Expires

If you have a MySQL database, there's an additional line, like this::
Disk quotas for user example (uid NNNNN):
                 Space used (Megabytes)           Number of Files               
Area             Usage   Quota   Limit  Expires   Usage   Quota   Limit  Expires

   Shell & Web    19.1       -  1032.4             1468       -  209825         
   Mail           41.2       -  1054.5                0       -  208357         
   MySQL 5         1.6       -  1014.9              175       -  208532         

Explanation:
- The first line is the combined numbers for all file systems.
- The second line is usage on the shell and web file system.
- If you have a MySQL database, its entry is on the third line.
"Space" is measured in Megabytes. Usage is the amount currently used.
"Quota" is the amount of space you have purchased (including what is included in your account).
"Limit" is the hard quota, which is normally 5%more than the amount of space purchased.
"Expires" is the time left before the "Limit" is dropped to the level of "Quota".
The number of files is a system issue. It should not be a problem for any user. If you find that you are close to quota on the number of files please ask us to increase that number for you.

All files owned by you on the system are included in your quota.
