Deleted Backups but Disk Space not reclaimed
« on: January 06, 2023, 06:51:16 PM »
Hi, I ran into a full disk usage and couldn't get into CWP7 Panel.  Through SSH it appeared backup was using over half of the diskspace.  I went through a deleted a lot of folder but the space wasn't reclaimed.  Is there something else I should run?  I've done a full reboot.  Thank you!

Use FileManager you will have to delete the backups from under /backup in the daily, weekly, monthly sub-folders.

Thanks, yes, I've got that part but it doesn't seem to have reclaimed the entire value of the /backup folder....  For example, /backup folder was 42GB but only reclaimed 30GB after deleting the entire folder.  I did restart the server also just in case.
