New to directadmin !
It seems old backups are not getting deleted and disk was full . Did not receive any email alert either before this happens

It was not possible to login. I had to create so many system backups and user backups

Please give me all the tips on this earth :)

Which way. To DA itiself?
Try logging in via SSH, this should still be possible with some luck.

Then go to your backups and delete some of them.

After that, check if quota is working because you should normally get a notification that the disk is running full.

Did you already clean up? Because it looks like there should be space enough at the moment:
Code:
/dev/md2        224G   41G  172G  20% /
where 172G is the free space.

Still can't login to DA?

Normally this command would be enough:
Code:
/usr/sbin/repquota /
however, from the paste it looks like quota is enabled.

You might check /usr/local/directadmin.conf I have this present:
Code:
partition_usage_threshold=95
restart directadmin.

Then also check this:
Code:
/usr/local/directadmin/directadmin c | grep send_usage_message
it should give you an answer like:
send_usage_message=1
this would send you a message when disk is at 95%. Also check spam folders of your mail.

Are these user or system backups? Ideally, system backups should be backed-up externally, it only takes a hardware issue or non-raid drives to die, then you're in trouble.
