    After performing an update last night a few select accounts are now showing twice the amount of disk space being used. Nothing goofy is mounted, and resetting the disk quotas didn't help.

    I did some searching in the forums here, and on a few others but everything came up empty. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Appreciate it!

    These commands requires login via root.Login to the server from SSH as a root and follow the procedure :

    cd /home/virtfs/
    du -ah --max-depth=1

    And look for any folder with larger size than 2MB e.g 500MB or 1GB+ need to be fixed like this :

    su username
    exit


    This will login to that user and exit jailshell "normally".Also check w and make sure that no one is logged in via jailshell.

    After that when there is no folder with size larger than 2MB in /home/virtfs/ then run /scripts/fixquotas.

    This will solve the problem.Do try it and let me know if any problem occurs.

    DS,
    I am not sure why I didn't get an E-mail saying there was a reply. I attempted that, and there were no folders that were even 2MB, the one was only 1.4MB. I've tried fixquotas before, and I reran it - to no avail. :-/

    Check those accounts that they may not contain files/folders with the ownership nobody becasue those will not be repaired by fixquotas.
