    Is it safe to delete /home/SYS-SNAP/arch-*

    cd /home/SYS-SNAP/arch-*

    rm arch-*

    In each of the arch folders, it just has a ton of

    Hello,

    Those files do not come from cPanel & WHM. However, they look like log files associated with a utility used to take a snapchat of the system. You can remove them as long as you don't need the data in the TXT files.

    Thank you.
