Where is my home directory after cPanel transfer?

    I was trying to transfer my small mail server (1200 accounts) from a shared to VPS server.

    On my VPS (WHM 11.32.2 (build 25)), I chose, "Copy an account from another server with account password" filled in the shared server (also 11.32.2 (build 25)) info as required and left it be.

    It finished with no errors, and I could see that directories had been made and my databases were there, but inside the new directories is only a very small part of my website?

    in /home/ there is a cpmove compressed file, and in /home2/{USER}/ (where my home directory was on the shared server) all the directories are there but again, not much inside them.

    Please see these pictures if that didn't make any sense:

    So I'm just wondering how to get all those files back. I have root access on the VPS if that helps.
    Thanks

    Solved. FTP'ing to the directories showed all the files in place

    What are you showing on the shared server account in public_html in comparison? We have the destination server details but not the source ones on what shows there. Thanks!

    Everything is there as it should be on the shared

    Problem ended up being partly my stupidity and partly Parallels Power Panel's way of displaying things. It's taken all day, but finally it's starting to work like it should... Cheers.

    We don't support Plesk shared to cPanel VPS/dedicated transfers, since we require root level access on both machines to perform a proper account transfer. I don't see prior mention of Plesk being used in your first post?

    Not Plesk, it was cPanel to cPanel. Parallels Virtual Automation is the correct term I believe.
