I’ve been notified lately that I had somehow managed to create over 2 million files on my hosting account. Unfortunately I had left on a caching feature from my proxy. This created a nice little 30GB of 2 million files, and it took a good 2 hours to remove. For anyone who isn’t aware, the caching feature will allow users to browse the proxy faster as it has already loaded certain files instead of having to download them again. Existing users shouldn’t really notice any change as I am on a very high speed plan anyway. I saved myself from account deletion and have managed to get the files down to some other number that I’m unaware of, but probably under 10.000 at least.

Yeah, oops.
