Considering you aren't able to host anything other than IPB on IPB hosting, why do you need so much space?

The only thing that would take up that much room would be if you had a boat load of images in your gallery...

I just ran a backup of my board and DB with 35k posts on it.. All files, and the DB, were less than 400mb. Including all uploads. Though I don't use gallery very extensively.

Incidentally, when was the amount of disk space used removed from the client area?

There not a file hosting company. All those 10mb file uploads aren't needed. Use file hosting sites for that. If your database even nears 1GB, I assure you will learn by then that IPS hosting is not for you. No offense.

EDIT: Nothing is wrong with IPS Hosting. Its great. You'll just outgrow it at some point :)

Probably better stated that you've 'outgrown' IPS hosting.

Would be the same case as if you were on a shared host. 'unlimited' really isn't 'unlimited'. Think about that for a bit..

Which is a good thing - it means your community is thriving and doing quite well. As mentioned, you can pack quite a punch into 700MB. You're much more likely to need to upgrade based on users than based on file storage.

That being said - If your community file centric, like a photography forum, Consider using some other medium for your users to host a majority of their uploads - such as flickr - or consider storing file uploads off-server on a CDN. Some of our customers very much like maxcdn.com for hosting file uploads in a push zone.

Collin, this is possible? I inquired once in a ticket how one could host uploads separately from the board, and was told that it was impossible. I'd love to know how it is done.

Yes, it's possible to host uploaded files off-server, though I believe it just started being possible in IP.Board with version 3.2 or 3.3. It's been in IP.Downloads for some time. :)

NetDNA has a (very basic) article on it as well:
