How much space i should dedicate for storj nodeon 10TB HDD? + about "lost+found" directory

  1. on the HDD is writen “10TB”, but “lsblk” shows “sda 9,1T” (HDD is gpt ext4 formated, i use ubuntu 22.04 LTS). How much space should i dedicate for storj node in docker command, if “lost+found”, i think, will use some space too (i dont knew how much can it use- its first time i thinking about “lost+found”)?
  2. do i need “lost+found” on storj space at all? Can i somehow remowe it? How, if “yes”? Is it safe to remove “lost+found” at all?

If this is a fresh drive, reformat it taking advantage of On tuning ext4 for storage nodes, you’ll save a few bytes.

By official recommendations you should take the number your file system reports (i.e. 9.1TB), divide by 11 and multiply by 10, so that a full node will still leave 10% of disk space free. That would mean 8.2 TB. Unofficially, you can go a little further if you are careful. The amount you allocate can be changed at any time.

It is safe to remove lost+found if you have nothing important there. But even if you remove it, ext4 will recreate it at some point. Don’t bother.

This is TiB. Storj uses TB. You can easily assign 9TB.
