• Disclaimer:  Yes, I have searched the forum and haven't found any real answer.  I may not have searched the right parms but I tried.

    I run my home system off a small SSD (21GB), and yes I have TRIM enabled.  Right now space is not an issue (hovering at 38%).  When I've done the recent upgrades .1 > .2 > .3, I opted to use the "full backup" option as I upgraded.  I know the system jumped incrementally each time… not much, a few percent.  Everything seems stable at this point so I am just wondering what to look at as far as "best practices" for cleaning up disk space.  Don't really need to right now but would rather have an answer in hand before I really NEED it.

  • You can delete backups you don't need anymore under System > Firmware > Restore Full Backup.

    This shell command will report free space for the file system.

    **    df -h**

    This shell command will report the Directory Tree

    **  du -sk /***

    If you use Suricata, or want to use Suricata, I would suggest increasing the Size of the Drive or you won't be able to use its logging and file extraction system very well with a small drive.

    If you use Squid, you can also delete the cache or logs.

    Thanks!!  I swear I looked at that screen 4 times and never saw the "delete" feature…  its a bitch getting old.

    Awesome help, thanks.
    After some info swaps with Bill, I'm going to stay in the Snort camp until Suricata gets true inline features.  I've got the drive back to 20% with little or no effort so I think things are happy for now.
