You can ignore those error messages. It's just telling you files that could not be accessed. Try browsing into the directory further and looking for what's taking up the space. EX:

Code:
# cd /
# du -sh *
Thank you.

It looks like you might be able to save some space by cleaning up your /tmp partition. Please see the following thread for information about cleaning /tmp:

Cron to clean /tmp

Thank you.

The "/tmp" location is a mount of the virtual file system located at "/usr/tmpDSK". The disk space usage in /tmp will count towards the partition that "/usr/tmpDSK" is stored on. Do you not see the same disk space usage when running the "du -sh" command within the /tmp directory?

Thank you.

It does appear the usage is from your /tmp partition, and it's just listed as a symbolic link. To note, the recommended partition setup is available at:

Recommended Partition

At some point, you should likely reinstall your Operating System and use a recommended partition scheme.

Feel free to open a ticket and we can let you know where the current usage is coming from:

Submit A Ticket

You can post the ticket number here so we can track the issue.

Thank you.

what information you need on the ticket ? A ssh access ?
Yes, you will be presented with a screen when you open a ticket that lets you know the SSH authentication instructions so we can access your server.

Thank you.

Yes, If you have generated backup through cPanel scripts then cPanel backup file includes all your domains' content (including addon and subdomains), emails, FTP account and databases for the account

If you have taken cPanel backups of all users then all files, DNS zones and databases will be covered up in it. You can directly restore your backups using cpanel script.
