I have been running my first Node for 1 month now, i understand it is a ‘slow start’ process with Audits for newcomers to be done and trafic being slow rigth now, BUT, in all the documentation i was prompted to use 3Tb minimum, so chose my 4Tb HDD to ensure i have the 10% extra too (4000Gb HDD = 3.6Tb Formatted = 3.3Tb Storj Node with 10% extra).
I have amassed <100Gb in the first month. I would like to reduce the use of my HDD to 2Tb until Storj actually uses it but dont want to waste the 100Gb i’ve ammassed so far. Then expand to 4Tb once Storj actually needs it.
From what i’ve read, i cant do this. I cant even see how to move a Node without it being onto another PC (i’m Raspberry 64 bit but same thing).
If this can be done the documentation needs clarifying either to get me to that info or to make it clearer.
Can anyone advise on this? If i’m only due 100-200Gb growth per month then i might as well quit now as 2-3 years to fill my HDD is a waste.
