Media under management by Media Center
« on: October 24, 2021, 07:41:23 pm »

OK, I had known that I have more than a few albums in Media Center.  And I knew that I have some video in Media Center.

But on a whim I decided to log into the server (I use FreeBSD and ZFS) that provides the data storage on my home network.  I changed directory so that I was sitting in the top directory of the data store for Media Center.  I ran the command...

        du -d1 -h .

(that's FreeBSD for ~show me how much disk space is used~, du=disk utilization, -h means show it to me in human numbers.

Woof, I was surprised to see that I entrust Media Center with a lot of data.

Of course, I'd expect that many (most?) here in this august forum have much more data entrusted to Media Center, and I applaud those media enthusiasts.
