    Okay, I understand about virtfs, where it comes from, etc (an account manager accidentally gave somebody jailshell access). None of our other users have it.

    Anyway. I've unmounted the user's space from /proc/mounts. But the space is still showing up.

    Another problem is that the backup scripts, I believe, are trying to backup the virtfs folder as well as everything else in the /home folder, which is causing backups to take forever. There's only one large account in that folder, using 35% of the partition, plus the virtfs folder and its contents, and backups are failing as the cp temp backup folder fills up the partition (which throws the user into a quota limit state).

    I want to eliminate the links under virtfs for this user - once I unmount them (and remove jailshell access from him), is there something else that needs to be done?

    cPanel techs said to run /scripts/fixquotas after you perform the unmount to see what happens...I have a similar issue in progress. I know its old but I figured I'd reply just in case because we are not the only one with this problem.

    What makes you think that cPbackup is trying to backup virtfs? Have you seen it turn up in top or ps?

    How did you unmount the user? (other than disabling the shell)

    I know it was backing up the virtfs folder and all its contents because I found it in the backup tmp files.

    It's been awhile, but I believe I unmounted the user, but it still does try to backup the virtfs folder (which would be a real problem if we allowed SSH access).

    And this is why virtfs annoys me:
