Hi,

Most of them you listed are the cPanel default files when the account is created, so you will have to examine what default files are created when an account is created and compared the newly created account files with these files here and decide on later.

Hello,

The only files I would recommend considering for removal from your original post are the directories prefixed with "cpmove". Those look to be old or failed backup directories that you can remove if you no longer require the backup data within them.

Thank you.

Thank you.
Then other folder are come from cPanel? If any folder deleted then does its created automatically? If directories as anything in there is legitimate data.

Hello,

No, folders that you delete are not always automatically re-created. The other folders you referenced do appear to come from cPanel and include data associated with features such as SpamAssassin, SquirrelMail, and Perl modules.

Thank you.
