DISKCRITICAL --> DISKWARN in 5 minutes

So at about 3am, we would receive an email (DISKCRITICAL) saying one of our mounts was at 93% full. Then 5 minutes late, a 2nd email would arrive (DISKWARN) telling us that % full is now at 85%. Without being able to compare the before and after of that particular mount, does WHM further compress the contents? This mount is an external SCSI area that we dump cpanel backups.

Anyone know what is going on here?

Hello :)

cPanel does not compress data when those warning emails are generated. It simply checks the available disk space. The backup process uses a certain amount of disk space temporarily. Thus, when the backups complete, the space is available again.

Thank you.
