In the language file admin/dashboard.php I found the string
$ubbt_lang['ATTACH_FOLDER'] = "Attachments in Folder";

This tring seems not to be used in /templates/default/admin/dashboard.tmpl
In this template I found this code section
<!-- Forum Statistics -->
<div class="padding">
<div class="bold">{$ubbt_lang['BOARD_STATS']}</div>
	<div style="width:350px;">
		<div><a href="{$config['BASE_URL']}/admin/forummanage.php">{$ubbt_lang['TOTAL_FORUMS']}&nbsp;<span class="alvt fr" style="width:100px;">$totalforums</span></a></div>
		<div>{$ubbt_lang['TOTAL_TOPICS']}&nbsp;<span class="alvt fr" style="width:100px;">$totaltopics</span></div>
		<div>{$ubbt_lang['TOTAL_POSTS']}&nbsp;<span class="alvt fr" style="width:100px;">$totalposts</span></div>
		<div><a href="{$config['BASE_URL']}/admin/approveposts.php">{$ubbt_lang['QL_P_APPRV']}&nbsp;<span class="alvt fr" style="width:100px;">$p</span></a></div>
		<div>{$ubbt_lang['ATTACH_DB']}&nbsp;<span class="alvt fr nw" style="width:100px;">$totalattach ($totalattachsize)</span></div>

I see $attachinfo and think there is missing something. This var is always empty and print nothing.The language string has something to do with this var.

$attachinfo shows your space used for attachments on disk vs what the db reports; this will only load if you are running a non-beta release, and you have debugging turned on. This behavior is handled by:
admin/dashboard.php - Look for line ~107-128

edit: the comment for the $attachinfo string within the dashboard.php file:
// Grab total attachments and size from the directory
// Because this process can be disk intensive, this option
// is only displayed when debugging is enabled.

it is generally not good practice for the admin landing page of a large forum to (for example) constantly count over 100,000 files and byte sizes on disk and sum 100,000 lines of text in the database each time the forum admin hits that page, unless they are debugging something related.

as gizmo mentioned, there is a note detailing this within the /admin/dashboard.php file. there is another one mentioned on the control panel's debug setting toggle.

from Control Panel > Primary Settings
Enable Debugging
FORUM: Page generation times, number of queries, memory stats, compression, forum server time, and forum software build information is displayed on the page footer. HTML Page minification is also disabled while debugging is enabled.
CONTROL PANEL: File Attachments stats are generated on the dashboard. Sites with a large number of file attachments may experience a delay in producing the page.

Warning: With this option is enabled, any time there its a database connection error, database connection information is displayed to everyone visiting your forums. This includes your database name, database user name, and the table name that failed connecting to. Passwords are not displayed. Debugging is safe to enable, but for security and overall forum performance, it should remain off.
