    Hello!

    I recently noticed that there is a folder called /home2 in my server's root. It contains the last accounts I created, which were imported from backups. The folder names begin with ~.

    The folders also exist in /home. I checked apache's configuration file, and the vhosts are set on /home.

    What's with this /home2 folder? Can I remove it?

    Thank you!

    Please post some of the output from /home2 to show us what it has. These could be hard links. So basically the "ls -lah /home2" output.

    No, not at all. /home and /home2 are on the same HDD.
    The files in /home2 are only links to the folders in /home folder.

    I have the primary HDD, mounted on /, and the backup HDD, mounted on /backup.

    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda1 267G 10G 243G 4% /
    /dev/sdb1 903G 8.6G 848G 1% /backup
