    Hi,

    I am migrating from one cPanel server to another.

    I see on WHM on the source server that the size is 6463MB and when I used SSH to package the account, sent it to the destination server and restored it via WHM, not SSH, the size after restore is 5576MB.

    Why is it almost a gb smaller?

    Thanks!

    Hello :)

    I suggest using the "du" utility via the command line to compare the accounts between the two servers and determine where the additional disk space usage is coming from.

    Thank you.
