    This is our first CloudLinux/cPanel server, and we've seen this issue occur twice now.

    In WHM ---> Backup ---> Configure Backup

    These two settings switch from Enabled to Disabled:

    Remount/Unmount Backup Drive
    Bail Out If Backup Drive Mount Fails

    When the system disables these settings, then the following occurs:

    1 -- The cPanel backup system will attempt to backup everything to the /backup folder (i.e. NOT the /backup directory because this is not mounted prior to the server-wide backup session.)

    2 -- The root partition rapidly fills up to 100%, then I get this email message from the server:

    The file system /dev/sda2, which is mounted at /, has reached critical status because it is 100% full.

    And of course our hosted members complain because they get a similar warning when attempting to access cPanel.

    Does anyone have any idea why the cPanel system would flip these two very critical options on the Configure Backup page to disabled?

    I can't think of any reason why any settings would be changed automatically like this. You should probably put in a ticket to cPanel Support so they can come by for a closer look.
