Application Disk Space for Confluence is full

The application disk space for our Confluence site is always full even when we continue to give it more storage. What could be causing this?

Between 2:00am and 3:00am it drops, then drops again between 5:00am and 6:00am.

Sometimes the application disk space improves but overall it decreases.

I understand why the database disk space drops, but I can't quite figure this other problem out.

Hi,

attachments / files are stored in disk & not in the database. I assume the "application disk space" is the space used by the Confluence server installation & the data directory. Correct?

It might be performing a backup around that time.

Checking the "logs" and "backups" folders might be a good place to start. Both can be found under the Confluence home/data directory.

you can go to both Confluence and Home folder and try this command to find out the top 5 items that took most of your space?

du -sh * | sort -n -r | head -n 5
