PROBLEM - My user's quotas are showing double for each of my users !

This is typically caused by the user's backups being owned by them instead of by root. To resolve this you should check the permissions on the backups, for example:

Code:
 ls -la /backup/cpbackup/weekly/username/homedir
If that is indeed owned by the user, you can issue this command:

Code:
 chown -R root:root /backup/cpbackup/weekly/*/homedir/
Note, this might cause a bit more work when you want to restore the user, due to the fact you may have to fix the permissions (there are scripts to do this)

Well that is provided the /backup partition has the mount option usrquota or else it won't show double if /backup is in its own partition which is recommended to be ;)
