Hello Leo

That is what I'd like to do, but unfortunately, the drive with the space is all allocated to the dirvish bank, so I can't move it out of here due to space limitations.

For example our dirvish bank is /backups with is a 250GB SCSI drive, and all of the images are within /backups/*.

Thanks for the reply.
