    A partition used for backups has quotas enabled. This data will count against the users' quota and are probably the reason why wrong disk quotas is reported by WHM. Does anybody here know how to disable quotas for the backup drive? Can I do it via ssh and if so, how should it be done?

    Thanks

    edit /etc/fstab, remove the quota directive from the partition you don't want quotas on, save close, unmount, remount partition.
