Reclaiming disk space

Michael Munger
I had several jobs setup with 90 day retention periods, 50GB volumes,
and Maximum Volumes = 100. This is consuming 2.4TB of space.

This is taking up too much disk space and - honestly - is overkill for
what we need to back up.

I have lowered the retention period to 35 days and the Maximum Volumes
to 20, which will hopefully limit our disk space consumption to 1TB of
space.

What command (if any) can I run that will delete from disk those volumes
that are no longer required? (Presumably, I only need the most recent 20
volumes now?)

Sorry, just sent this from the wrong Email

Michael, I found this script somewhere if it helps

#!/bin/bash
cd /PATH/TO/bacula-backups/
for dir in $(find . -type d); do
for i in `find $dir -maxdepth 1 -type f -printf "%f\n"`; do
  echo "list volume=$i" | bconsole | if grep --quiet "No results to list"; then
        echo "$i is ready to be deleted as $dir/$i"
        rm /PATH/TO/bacula-backups/$dir/$i
  fi
done
done


Regards
Francis
