1.4tb at 32%. 100mb is gas in a windstorm. Rob Berendt ================== "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

JT, we never seem to be able to hit even fundamental common ground, either on specifics or on the abstract concept. This is a perfect example. Regarding the specifics, I don't know how many AS/400 clients you have, but most of mine fret about disk space on their production machines. I know of people who change the disk warning limit to a number less than the default of 5% because they routinely run at over 95% DASD utilization. With images, flash presentations and PDF files it's not hard to get 100MB on a web site. In your case, that's over one percent of your storage. Many of my clients would kill to get one percent of their DASD back. But ultimately the issue is not whether you CAN put the stuff on your AS/400, but whether you SHOULD. Why in the world would you waste the precious space on your production machine for something that could just as easily be stored on a different medium? There is no good reason, other than management. And if you can't manage the storage on a single attached PC, then you have far larger problems in your IS organization than this particular issue. Joe "I see herrings, and they're all red!"
