Hello,

It seems you have enabled quota support for /backup drive. You can delete those files. quota is not advisable in backup drive. You may also need to remove it from /etc/fstab if it is there.

If your fstab contains an entry something like this

/dev/sdb /backup ext2 defaults,usrquota 1 2

please make it as

/dev/sdb /backup ext2 defaults 1 2

quotaon -pau
