cpmove-mysite.tar.gz.part10 100,020,000?

Hello, I am new to linux in a way, and while browsing the contents of the harddrive on my Cpanel server I noticed a bunch of these files (Note that mysite is replaced with my real site name):

cpmove-mysite.tar.gz.part10 100,020,000

I can only assume that these are backups? They are all stored in my home directory, and I have recently installed a second hardrive that is used for backups and all of my sites are backups on it. So can I delete all of these cpmove files?

well, did you try to untar it and see what is actually in the file? If it looks like its just a copy, then it *should* be safe to delete, if you're not sure, try just moving the file somewhere else temporarly and see if it behaves weird afterwards. If it does just move it back. But I would think it would be okay to just remove it.
