    I would suggest to move or rename the old folders (except the attachments one, that should have everything now). That's pretty much like deleting them, but let's you undo it if something gets broken. Don't forget to clear your cache when testing it!
    Thanks, thats a good tip indeed, i will just rename them to see if anything breaks from attachments or albums

    The problem is, i think, that the system has copied the files to the new centralized location, but not deleted the old files (1.3 gig)

    I need this confirmed somehow so that i can delete the old files

    Have you tried to optimize your tables?

    They are located in the filesystem:

    Unique / Total Attachments 23.172 / 22.044
    Attachment Filesize Sum 1,40 GB
    Disk Space Used 1,34 GB
    Storage Type Attachments are currently being stored in the filesystem at /public_html/community/images/attachments
    Average Attachment Filesize 63,4 KB
    Total Downloads 128.525

    But i have a big feeling albums are included now? thats correct right?
    And all those album images are also located in this location (old version vb?):
    /public_html/community/images/albums taking up double space?

    Is that old? or still being used?

    Um... Are your attachments stored inside the database or in the file system?

    AdminCP -> Attachments -> Attachment Storage Type

    It's recommended that they be outside of the database, thus keeping your database from getting bloated.

    after upgrading > site 1 gig larger...

    my image database is/was about 1 gig in size, i think. after upgrading all my attachments etc were moved to another location? or what did it do?

    anyway.. my site size has grown from 3-> 4 gig in total before and aftert the upgrade

    is there "old" stuff i can delete? old images etc?

    thanks!
