    I've noticed that the root (/) is 71% full and the /home is only 5% full. The server is only used for webhosting. The root is only partitioned to 494M. We added a 120G harddrive and want to know what is the best way to utilize the diskspace for the new drive. Is there a way to re-partition the root (/) so it is larger than 494M and it doesnt fill up soon. I just fill like 494M isnt enough and would hate for it to fill up and cpanel stop functioning even though the other partitions have plenty of space. Hope this makes sense.

    Also, in cpanel for format/mount new harddrive, does it find all the drives or only the unmounted/unformatted ones? It shows Found Disk: hdb which im guessing is the new drive we added and Found Disk: hdc which should be the cdrom. I just dont want to format the current drive which should be HBA.

    In my experience, /root doesn't grow or at least doesn't grow much, so I would say you not have to worry. Support Ticket Number:
