I noticed my stats are taking up a lot of my disk space as my site grows larger. Can I back up or delete my statistics?

We do recommend that you periodically back up the files in your stats directory, in order to remove them and make better use of your account disk space. Storing statistics for several past months and years can greatly increase usage of your allocated space.

Be cautious, however, not to delete the stats folder itself. Deleting this directory will disable the statistics program from continuing to generate your site statistics.
