Over Limit Message

Dear Mozy Community,

I am seeing a message that I am over my limit (see screenshot attached).  And that 39.9 MB of files are awaiting backup.  When I look at my settings, however, I see that I have 5.3 GB available.  See screenshot attached.  Why am I getting the over-limit error?

Well, it's all a bit odd.  I took the steps indicated in the article.  There was no number next to USED.  Then I ran in administrator mode -- and no change to the USED number.  But, even though that's all I did, now Mozy does seem to be working fine.  Thanks for the help.
