    I have a VPS with Servint and using 14 gig of 20 allowed however when I add up the space I think I'm using it's no where near 14 gig. What else could be using up this space and how can I remove it all?

    Check to see if you have backups running WHM and if they are see what you have them setup to backup. Also if you don't have your accounts default address to :fail: then run something like this

    du -h /home/*/mail/inbox | grep M | sort -n | tail -10

    and

    du -h /home/*/mail/inbox | grep G | sort -n | tail -10

    I caught a customer of ours once with a 10GB inbox file.

    try doing this from /home/

    du -h --max-depth=1

    It'll help determine which user has been using the most diskspace.
