Is there a non SSH way to view your backup folders/cpanel files?

    Hi Guys, as a non linux administrator, i was wondering if there is a control panel addon for WHM to view backup folders and keep them clean. Problem I have is that old accounts that we have terminated months ago, are still taking up space on the drives. Is there is not a control panel, anyone know of some easy commands to be able to see these files and perhaps delete them all?
    Thanks
    Don

    I think this is what you want:

    No it's not corrupted.
    Go to their website:
    NDCHost - Clean Backups plug-in for cPanel/WHM

    I'm afraid you need SSH to get it installed tho...

    Hello,

    There is no need to rely on third party scripts to do such simple task, if you are little aware of scripting.

    Removing backups with account removal can be achieved easily by postkillacct hook script ( cPanel & WHM Script Hooks ). It needs SSH access to set it up though!

    Thank you,
    Nibin.
