    Hello :)

    You should never directly remove files in the /home/virfs directory. Instead, follow the instructions in the document if you need it disabled or removed. Note: The document you referenced is from our old documentation system. The updated URL is:

    VirtFS (Jailed Shell)

    A bind mount is a transparent link between two places 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/$user directory itself is not actually using up any additional space than already exists. Data is not actually duplicated.

    Thank you.
