I moved from wordpress.com to wordpress.org this week. I moved over 97 blog posts which all had images. WordPress.com provided 3072MB storage space and I used only 46.69MB which was 2% of allowed Space.
I got a 5GB storage from my host provider for my wordpress.org and I am shocked to discover that after uploading 90% of my images (I had to do this manually as wordpress xml importer did not transfer all my images) that my storage space reads (794.89 GB / 8.19 GB) 803.08 GB and a scan by both wordfence plugin reveals I have only 1.04% storage left.
I had installed W3 Total Cache earlier this week but deactivated it on the suspicion that it was caching image edits that I made manually to each blog post but that has not helped.
can someone please help me? Many Thanks
