Hello Team,

I have a 1Tb server and around 100Gb is used by the virtfs. While checking none of the users are using jailed shell. If I delete the content of the "/home/virtfs1" will remove my contents in users home directory?

Thanks in advance.

Hello @Arunlal P.R,

The data in /home/virtfs does not actually use disk space because it's using BIND mounts to create virtual links between two locations on the file system. For example, if a user views the contents of /home/virtfs/username/usr/bin, the user actually sees the contents of /usr/bin. Thus, the /home/virtfs/username directory itself is not actually using up any additional space than already exists. Data is not actually duplicated. This is documented at:

VirtFS - Jailed Shell - Version 78 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

Thank you.
