Hello,
Thank you for your post . You can clean up disk by login SSH . if you are not familiar with SSH command  then i can give you another solution .

You can do it by ” ConfigServer Explorer ”  ( if you do not have the plugins you can install it very easily.

Login your WHM as root user , search the plugins ” ConfigServer Explorer”
Click on ” backup ” folder  .. (  Never click another folder )
Now you can get all of backup files , you can remove unnecessary backups. Do not remove any system file.
