    First we have second drives on our servers for backup purposes only. When a account is deleted in whm it does not delete the backups that go with that account. Anyway for cpanel to add this in..?

    Second we find ourselves deleting backups from terminated accounts 1 at a time. Is there a coomand we could use to say use the username and delete everything that relates to that username?

    thx

    I don't think it is really required. Those left over backups will eventually be expunged. Another thing is that sometimes accounts are mistakenly terminated--would kind of suck having your backups removed as well.

    If you really wanted to get rid of anything that has to do with terminated accounts, you can write a script to list the usernames in /home and then compare backups, cpanel user files, etc. Anything that doesn't match up gets removed.
    Again this comes back to writing a script to take care of your dirty work.

    I agreed on both points thank you for getting my head straight.

    Question does the backup, backup a account if it suspended?
