    Hello,

    I've got a gaggle of empty logs that look like this:

    Code:
    0       /var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto20150424000505TQLe/master.error_log
    0       /var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto20150424162851nyV7/master.error_log
    0       /var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto20150424174000umd7/master.error_log
    0       /var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto201504241809035pAC/master.error_log
    0       /var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto20150425004946lIRa/master.error_log
    0       /var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto20150425005013bjSf/master.error_log
    0       /var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto20150427150631w2XC/master.error_log
    0       /var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto201504272050262EQh/master.error_log
    
    And this:
    Code:
    0       /home/virtfs/USERNAME/var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto20150424162851nyV7/master.error_log
    0       /home/virtfs/USERNAME/var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto20150424174000umd7/master.error_log
    0       /home/virtfs/USERNAME/var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto201504241809035pAC/master.error_log
    0       /home/virtfs/USERNAME/var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto20150425004946lIRa/master.error_log
    0       /home/virtfs/USERNAME/var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto20150425005013bjSf/master.error_log
    0       /home/virtfs/USERNAME/var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto20150427150631w2XC/master.error_log
    0       /home/virtfs/USERNAME/var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/SERVERNAMESUBSETcresto201504272050262EQh/master.error_log
    
    Question 1: Did I do something to cause these and/or is there something I should do to avoid them?

    Question 2: are the OK to delete? Just 'by hand' or is there a serverscript or ?

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    1. Please refrain from modifying or deleting files from the /home/virtfs directory because it can lead to unrepairable filesystem errors. It's documented here:

    VirtFS

    2. It's acceptable to remove the entries in /var/cpanel/transfer_sessions/ if you prefer to do so (assuming there are no active transfers). However, the existence of those files is normal (you likely completed a transfer of accounts recently).

    Thank you.

    1. VirtFS: ah, right. Thanks for the reminder.

    2. Thanks much! You are correct, newly converted Ensim user here. :) The transfer scripts worked very well, BTW.
