Couldn't have said it better myself. Why bother wasting time
researching. By reading your post, and the little blurb about OVDB and
it's storage requirements. IF 8G is Causing you grief. Spend $60 and
pick up a 80G And Save yourself years of grief. Take $120, buy to 80's
and raid them. I'm assuming because it's a NNTP server you have your
spool on it's own disk, so breaking it off spending 10-15 mins swaping a
drive, partitioning a disk, and moving the old data back. Should be a
rather trivial task.
