    How is that possible? Is there any way of seeing what is doing that? What is taking up all that space?? Please help, its making my loads really high.

    Thanks!

    I Just saw what the problem was, my backup drive was not mounted so when it went to do the backups last night I guess it put files in the wrong place or held them over. Any way to resync so to speak the "df" command so it reads right now?

    df will show you your paritions and their usage. df -h will make the output human readable.

    what I mean is, I cannot find the place that the backups were put since the backup drive was not mounted when cpanel ran the backups, so the filesystem is still full, I just cannot find where the stuff is.

    This will show you what is taking up all of your space.

    if I restarted the machine would it clean up those files since cpanel put them there?

    it looks like cp, gzip, and tar are running on each site to do the backup, is this going to remove those files?

    killall -9 cpbackup
    killall -9 tar
    killall -9 gzip
    killall -9 cp

    Now, for the third time:

    cd /
    du -sh *

    Post the output to the above.

    I get "No matching processes were found" when I do the killall, but if I do a top I see

    72304 root 126 20 588K 392K CPU0 1 0:11 82.58% 39.50% gzip

    72303 root -8 20 752K 352K pipdwt 0 0:01 4.39% 2.10% tar

    ok, doesnt all the things below "/" make up "/" I mean if my df output is this

    /dev/ad0s1a 1030702 1030664 -82418 109% /
    devfs 1 1 0 100% /dev
    /dev/ad0s1g 45350860 6125670 35597122 15% /home
    /dev/ad0s1e 771534 22 709790 0% /tmp
    /dev/ad0s1f 15115950 2221032 11685642 16% /usr
    /dev/ad0s1d 10076302 591434 8678764 6% /var
    procfs 4 4 0 100% /proc
    /dev/ad1s1 76910120 18439736 52317576 26% /garage

    and none of those partitions are even close to full, how is it that the"/" is like that, is that wierd or what?
