I’m just watching the video, even though I’m using Linux everywhere, just to see the process of installing it and to be able to help here in the forum.
Around 34:15 he explains why you should leave some free space on your hard disk and says, if a customer deletes files, it goes into the trash folder for 7 days and the trash folder doesn’t count towards the allocated space.
That is wrong on 2 levels. First, if a customer deletes files it normally gets deleted on the storagenode too. Only if the storagenode fails to delete the files for whatever reason at the moment the satellite requests it, the garbage collection will pick up these files later and puts it in the trash for 7 days. At least that’s what we’ve been told here.
Secondly, the files in trash seem to count towards the allocated space, even though the dashboard still shows it as free space. That’s a good thing, because it prevents the storagenode from running out of space. At least that’s what I’m observing at the moment.
Also, his struggle to copy some text from the website with the mouse was painful to watch
LPT: you can triple click on the text and it should mark the whole line/paragraph.
