    Hi Does anyone know if i can remove the partition on my drives without losing the data ?

    I have 3 drives ssd just for boot and 2 x 500 for files and backups both split in half on raid 1

    Hello :)

    I do not recommend modifying the partitions on your system without the assistance of a qualified system administrator. It may be safer to simply ensure your account backups are stored on a remote server or hard drive, and then reinstall the OS with the partitions of your preference. You would then install cPanel and restore the accounts.

    Thank you.

    Yes i could do that but that means the customers sites would all go offline while i moved it all,
    think i will just leave it and on my next one make sure its done the right way.

    Thanks for the reply :)
