I played around a little more with this and found some problems that I
have to investigate. When I move a file into the area from another
directory it gives an error. That isn't really a big deal but I don't
like putting things into production with known problems unless I have a
vague understanding of the problem. So it will be a couple more days
before I have the time to track this down.
The size of this new, purged area is: 1926596K bytes.
