    A little confused here -

    I setup backups the other day and stupidly set it to /backups without thinking. I changed the backup directory and deleted the /backup directory I had setup.

    The other night I got an email telling me the /dev/sda1 partition was full! I had a look and it seems the user.quota* file is using a large ammount of space - any ideas on this? I've already tried /scripts/fixquotas and /scripts/initquotas with no success.

    Code:
    Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda1              1510032   1407340     25984  99% /
    /dev/sda7             85080348  15938308  64820156  20% /home
    none                    500384         0    500384   0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda6               505605     23059    456442   5% /tmp

    1Mb isn't really that huge. You sure that file is the problem? The quota.user file on my server is only 2Mb.

    Do a "du -m / | less" and scroll through that, see what is so huge.

    Nothing appears to be very large, which is annoying :(
