Okay. Update day is here. I got the Rez soundtrack playing on the stereo and I am ready to get this done.
Keep an eye on @egypturnash for detailed updates as this happens.
So yeah the media drive has gone from 95% full to 8% full. That's a whole year of cached media from other instances that we finally got rid of. 276 gigs of stuff down to 21, most of which is probably ours - I only kept the past three days of remote media.
Tomorrow I plan to get this task running on a regular basis again, then work on shrinking our disc usage to bring the monthly bill back down to $notmuchatall.
