    Hi,

    I'm not a site admin, just a normal cPanel user. Recently I moved from one cPanel host to another, using the backup utility to transfer my files. The transfer suceeded, however, I was left with a wrong disk space indicated. Is there any quick fix for this that the USER can do? If not I shall get my admin to run fix quota or something.

    Also, pointers on which extra directories I should delete are welcome.

    Thank you.

    Tell your Admin to run: /scripts/fixquotas

    that should fix the problem.

    Also, Your host may need to remove the extracted directories in /backup/cpbackup/daily/<username> (or monthly or weekly) as if they have been extracted, the files in there will have the same UID as your user, thus accounting for the extra disk space
