Suddenly reaching my bandwith limit REALLY fast! (2 posts)

    Hi!

    I'm having problems with my blog (spandabel) and the bandwith limit I have! I'm hosted with a 30gb bandwith limit per month which is normally more than enough (I usually end up at 5 or 6 gb in one month). But two days ago I changed my background image in "appearance"->"background", and only a couple of hours later my site was out. I had reached the limit and used 6gb in 13 hours. And I didn't have that many visitors, maximum 100 a day.

    I deleted the pictures that was uploaded in the time around the crash (all of them) via filezilla, and I got an ekstra 800mb bandwith from my host. But in 1,5 hour that was used as well. Again!

    I have tried to use http://tools.pingdom.com/ to check the size of my blog, because the supporter at my host told me that it used 15mb every time it was loading. But that was before I deleted the pictures! Now I can't see any problem on Pingdom, can any of you??

    The BIG issue is, that I will get my next month's ressources of bandwith at midnight. And I wanna be sure, that the same won't happen again (800mb in 1,5 hour) because that means more or less that I will have the site open for app. 56 hours!!
    That is why I need help NOW so that this won't crash my site again! Please!

    Does anyone have a clue what might have happened? did I not delete the pictures in the right way, could it be some of the other pictures suddenly taking up a lot of space (I'm using photobucket and html codes from there, and have been using it for quite a while with no problems) or what could it be?? I'm quite a newbie, but I will try my best to keep up!

    Thank you in advance!
    - Anne
