    Yes can you specify the folder name created or which folder is taking up space, I think those look like log generated emails.

    Hello,

    As mentioned, we'd need to know the full path to the directory you are viewing to provide you with an accurate answer.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    I couldn't find any examples of those files existing as part of a cPanel & WHM feature. Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look to verify where those files might have come from?

    Thank you.
