My folder which contains bandwidth usage data is getting too large. My question is if i will break something when i delete the contents of this folder. I don't realy care about the data in there because i don't check bandwidht usage for my users

or should i just move the folder to a bigger disk and create a symlink to it?

folder: /var/cpanel/bandwidth

too big... what is too big? – Bon Gart Jul 4 '12 at 13:33
the folder has 10GB – Gabriel Jul 4 '12 at 13:37
just the bandwidth directory? What exactly is in there? – Bon Gart Jul 4 '12 at 15:10
Let me rephrase. You should not have 10GB of data in that directory, if it is only referring to the bandwidth usage of your cpanel controlled reseller account. Thus, you should re-examine exactly what this 10gb consists of... file by file, directory by directory. A year's worth of 4kb reports for a single account should add up to about 1.5mb... and have you had 600 accounts for 10 years to accumulate 10GB worth? – Bon Gart Jul 4 '12 at 15:26
