    This is probably a stupid question, but I haven't been able to find an answer anywhere. Is it possible for one account to reside on multiple partitions? I have two drives that are 80 GB but I have about 100 GB of data, so it's too big to fit on just one of them. When I create a new account it seems to restrict the account to use only of the drives. Thanks for your help!

    Well yes and no. You could always go the RAID / LVM route but depending on the setup that is nothing you can do later on.

    You can also mount a drive as a specific folder, such as /home/user/public_html/massive_media_directory/ . If you have one folder with a lot of the data this could work out for you.

    If you have a lot of accounts in the few Gb range you could always mount it as home2 and re-arrange some of the accounts via WHM to the new home dir.
