    Ive only seen the cpbackup actually umount the /backup drive maybe a few times. Every time I have to go in and manually umount it. I have the options in backup config checked to do this. It doesnt which is a big security risk as if god forbid I was hacked, someone could delete all my stuff including the backups all because cpbackup didnt umount it after backup was ran.
    In /etc/fstab I have
    /dev/sdb1 /backup ext3 defaults 1 2

    Anyone know what i can do to make cpbackup umount my drive like its supposed to?

    I posted something about this to bugzilla a few years ago. Opened: 2005-03-01 Confirmed by cPanel.

    It seems to not umount when backup is run from an account. Which IMO is strange as there's no need to even mount if an account creates a backup.

    Regular system backups does umount properly when completed.
