I have a user that has 30+ gigs of files that need to be accessible via FTP.

I was wondering if there was a way to move his Home drive to a secondary larger drive and have CPanel do all the FTP management thru the interface.

Is that possible?

This is easily achieved. Simply move his directory to another disk/partitian and symlink it back.
FTP behavior will continue without a hitch.

Example:
Code:
mv /home/username/bigdir /backup/bigdir
ln -s /backup/bigdir /home/username/bigdir

Once you install your harddrive make something like /home2 the use WHM >> Main >> Account Functions >> Rearrange Accounts
