    Hello,

    I'm transferring my accounts to my new server.
    After completion of the transfer, I found that the disk space usage of each account on the new server is different than the original usage.
    for example mysql of an account was using only 30MB on the old server but it becames more than 1.5GB on the new server!
    or another account was 5GB on the old server but it becames 1.5GB on the new server.
    It's too strange.
    I'm using "Restore a full backup / cpmove file" option in WHM.

    Please help me how do I fix it? My old server will be expired in the next 24 hours and I've to transfer all of my accounts to the new server before I lose them.

    Regards

    well i suggest you to move all your files over sshfs for example and then restore the accounts locally after you've moved all the necessary files already

    Hello :)

    It's possible that some files are not included in the backup of the account on the source server. Are you able to consult with your existing hosting provider for the account on the source server to see if they receive any error messages when packaging the account manually?

    Thank you.
