We are getting quite large discrepancies between 'Size on disk' and
'Usage' numbers, so I've run the scripts/set_user_disk_usage.py script.
When I run it, some of the 'old usage' numbers are negative numbers, e.g.
User1 old usage: -226417886261, new usage: 139894688577
User2 old usage: 263698720473, new usage: 68974834617
User3 old usage: 397108490587, new usage: 406950046043
User4 old usage: -57441684074, new usage: 7536071906
This seems a little strange (how can a user have a 'minus' usage?). Is
there an explanation for this?

There's a script to recalculate if the total becomes off, see
scripts/set_user_disk_usage.py. I've found that on the public site, the
totals are occasionally off by small amounts, meaning there must be
somewhere where data is associated with or disassociated from a user and
is not accounted for. I haven't yet found a reproducible way to make the
total incorrect, so I haven't found the bug yet. If you happen to notice
when this occurs, please let me know. Otherwise, it should be safe to
run the usage script via cron to update totals that become incorrect.
