    Don't, stop. You'll break things. Those are not actual files that can be removed.
    VirtFS (Jailed Shell) - cPanel Documentation

    Check the actual accounts and have the account owners do maintenance on them instead. Or, upsell them to have more space. :)

    Hello :)

    Please keep in mind that a bind mount is a transparent link between two places on the file system. For example, if a user views the contents of /home/virtfs/username/usr/bin, the user actually sees the contents of /usr/bin. Thus, the /home/virtfs/$user directory itself is not actually using up any additional space than already exists. Data is not actually duplicated.

    Thank you.

    The disk space you are seeing is not actually used in the virtfs directory. You are seeing the disk space used by the directories linked to.

    Thank you.
