More info for the curious:
2.9G - avatars (average 12.8M per user)
5.6G - headers (average 25M)
3.2G - "attachments" (average 0.17M per toot)
All this tells me is that @Gargron needs to look at optimising avatar and header images, because I would never have expected those to take up more space than images people actually upload in toots.
Or, more likely, I've missed a config step that would do this.
@M0YNG impressive. Are there tools to clean the cruft out for you or is it manual work?
@m0puh tootctl is the backend management tool, it can do stuff like purge media from remote servers over x days old
@M0YNG ahh right, so maybe you need to put that in a cron!
