Hi Michael

If older versions of NetWorker were used, investigate the contents and size
of
nsr\res\statistics Could be ~ 200 GB consumed.

Disabled statsdb database

The statsdb database is a SQLite database that is populated with backup
statistics and

is located under /nsr/res/statistics. This database has the potential to
grow

very large and take up multiple GBs of space. NetWorker 8.2 SP4 does not
use the

statsdb database to record information and it is automatically disabled.

You can delete statsdb under /nsr/res/statistics to increase hard drive
space.

Already at 8.2.4.3, but thanks anyway, I didn't know that.
