    I've got a strange problem on my dedicated server (whm/cpanel) that i only noticed recently with my /backup 80GB EIDE drive

    Dual AthlonMP 2000+
    2GB PC2100 REG ECC DDRAM
    2x 18GB SCSI 10k
    1x 80GB EIDE backup drive

    i have a cron script to backup databases every 12hrs to /backup/mysql1backup and /backup/mysql2backup alternating each 12hrs

    after each backup an email log of the backup will be sent to me saying whether each database was backed up successfully

    now the emails have all reported successful backups

    problem is now when i go to /backup as root user in ssh telnet it's empty ls -alh reports 0 files , but df -h reports 35GB used disk space in /backup ?? :confused:

    if i manually run the cron script it reports /backup/mysql1backup and /backup/mysql2backup etc don't exist ???

    any ideas ?

    I'd have to check some files and settings....

    I'd be more than glad to take a look at it for you, just drop me an e-mail to sales@coastinc.com

    I have the SAME problem...

    /backup is there... the DF SHOWS used space...
    but I can't see it from SSH as root?!?!

    a df shows:
    /dev/hda1 76920448 23831640 49181400 33% /backup

    a ls -la
    total 0

    :confused: :confused: :confused:

    What could cause this?
