... I decided to do some housekeeping, and clear old crap off my NAS.
It's a 16TB Seagate BlackArmor (4 by 4TB spinners) set as RAID5, so I get a total of 11TB of storage - and I'm a data-rat, I keep everything.

But ... it was under 10% free, so the time had come. And with trepidation I told my system to select 5.3TB of old data and ... gulp ... delete it permanently. This was not an easy "OK" button to press.

All gone, never to be restored. I feel emptier somehow ... Laugh | :laugh:
And look at all that space! My explorer window has echoes now.
