Sorry to disturb the List with the similar topic, but I observed some 

the server runs linux, she says:

teflon@bmargit:~$ df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1             465M  184M  257M  42% /
/dev/hda3              74G   68G  3.2G  96% /data


teflon@bmargit:~$ sudo bbstoreaccounts info 233
                  Account ID: 00000233
              Last object ID: 267178
                 Blocks used: 34814915 (67997.88Mb)
    Blocks used by old files: 1573153 (3072.56Mb)
Blocks used by deleted files: 8656077 (16906.40Mb)
  Blocks used by directories: 27196 (53.12Mb)
            Block soft limit: 34816000 (68000.00Mb)
            Block hard limit: 36352000 (71000.00Mb)
         Client store marker: 1101196553000000

which means all allowed space is used by the client.

Past day I changed the limits in order to evade run-off of space on the 
server. Now I got mails about `Files are not being backed up', but I 
expected to see, as far as I recall, the lowering of amount of data 
marked as deleted and old in favour of new. Will this happen after a 
specified time? If so, then I do not see any reason for this way of 
operation, as I tend to keep newly uploaded data more important than the 
older or deleted ones.

Thanks, regards
