I believe that those are cached memory, not storage. Google for squid and read the docs.

Also try seaching, I just found a bunch of posts that could/can explain it to you a little more. Below is one

Have you tried reading the VERY well documented
squid.conf file? 16 and 256 have NOTHING to do with
the allotted disk size.... and how to change a 128 to a
10000 I will leave to your own imagination.... ;}
