Hello all I was just wondering why "Disk usage" for Seti@Home is still showing 74.61 MB of usage even after this project has been paused?
Thanks for any info.

Because it will still have all of the application and project files there.

Thank you for your speedy reply, if you don't mind a little further question with SETI@home I've noticed that under Projects (I guess since it's still showing in the Project list) it's
showing under Resource share as 100 (25.00%) as I'm also running three other Projects. Will this have any effect on my other Projects? So what should I do i.e. remove
it or just wait till SETI@home is hopefully resurrected?
Thank you in advance

Since you actually aren't crunching any Seti work, (there is none), the resource share for Seti is ignored. You are running your 3 other projects essentially at 33.33%.

It's really up to you.
I've set No New Tasks for SETI, thus, while it will still be on my list of projects it won't be looking for work.
Others have done nothing so SETI will be requesting work about once a day.
Others set the SETI resource share to zero, it will be there, but won't call for work unless all your other projects are out of work.
