I, as a sysadmin, would lova that WHM precalculate the size of the addon in order to know an approximated weight in GB so that one can assign the right package or get become aware if the desired package will not be enough to store the new cPanel account.

This will a very cool feature because some addons have lots of subdomains, databases, files, folders, email accounts, and so on, thus making difficult to manually figure out how much disk space can be taking.

In addition to this, I noticed that if you choose the wrong package (a smaller one) WHM won't abort the conversion nor even warn you that there is no enough disk quota until it is too late. It will go on with the conversion until the new account has no more free disk space and then things will start to break as it cannot continue copying files. So, some parts of the addon domain will remain uncopied in the original account. This feature request want to bring awareness about this issue and help avoid these troubles in the future.

Hope you can take it into consideration. Best regards.
