Hello,

I have added disk storage home2 as a second drive and that reflected on Cpanel, now I want to understand this scenario:

"home" disk space -> 50 GB
"home2" disk space -> 100 GB

What will happen to an account on "home" directory when exceeds 50 GB ?

Will I need to move it to "home2" or the whole space between the two drives will be shared ?

Thank you,

Hello,
You would need to manually move the account if the drive it exists on becomes full. There is the rearrange accounts feature which can be used for this but it will not be moved locations automatically.

The account could stop functioning normally if you ran out of space on the drive it is hosted on.
