    Hi,

    I have done the searching and the researching and have discovered that my users are getting shown incorrect disk space usage because cPanel is including files outside of the users /home directory when doing the disk space usage calculation. Specifically it's adding in space used by nightly and weekly backups.

    Is it somehow possible to prevent backups from creeping into this calculation?

    This happens when running incremental backups. If running full backups it should not happen as the files are then gzipped and chown root.
