I need to keep a close eye on the server storage.
We ran out of disk space, so everything stopped working.

We're back now!

How much storage does an instance occupy? Seeing all those pictures, gifs and whatnot I started to wonder

@sp6mr it's not too bad for our own files.
So far I've taken the lazy route and just keep the files uploaded directly to on the server.

Big sinks of storage are remote media, which gets cached on our server when someone views it and backups, which I download periodically, and remove from the server.

The compressed backup is over 200mb (not containing media) every day

The last time I cleared remote media was over 5 Gb
7.5G avatars and headers
2.9G attachments
