Very High Disk Usage since installing W3 (2 posts)

    Hi there, I wonder if anyone can help. I am pretty much a novice in this area so any help would be great. Since installing W3 my disk space usage is getting very high.

    Here are my settings:
    Page cache: Enabled
    Page cache method: Disk:Enhanced
    CSS&JS Minify: Not Enabled
    Database Cache: Enabled
    Object Cache: Enabled
    Object Cache Method: Disk
    Browser Cache: Enabled
    CDN: Enabled
    CDN: MaxCDN

    It seems as if the page_enhanced dir is the main culprit now using 433.61 mb of space. I empty the caches through the W3 admin panel but this only seems to clear the tmp dir. Can I delete the files within the page_enhanced folder without effecting performance or disabling utilities? Do I even need to have this option enabled as I have a CDN? Are there any other settings that would reduce impact on the disk space? I am on a shared server using apache.

    Thanks in advance

    On closer inspection it seems that W3 is not the only reason for this increase. I have gone through and sorted these other contributors, but still need some help with the W3 settings if possible.
