Subject Re: Ran out of space during cleanup.. HELP
Date Wed, 08 Dec 2010 16:05:28 GMT
I was in a similar situation and luckily had snapshots to clear and
gain space but you are correct.  I would be careful of using the disk
more than 50% as the anit-compaction during cleanup could fail.

I don't have any experience with adding a data directory on the fly.
