So I enabled backups in WHM after creating a backup directory; and then told convert2maildir to back up all profiles. After getting about half of them backed up, I had to cease and desist because the backup partition was maxed out. My question - obviously it's a good thing to back up; but I am not quite sure (being as I'm junglecat's sidekick) if there is more space available - even if we can repartition, not sure if there'll be enough space even then. So my question is - is it absolutely NECESSARY to back these up before conversion? I know that sounds like an all-time dumb question; but if it just means a bit more cmd line work if the conversions fail, that's one thing; if it means total loss of mail/directories, that's another.
