    Hi All ,

    I have a storage pool with file device class where access is sequential . I do not have any next stg pool as there is no tape setup .
    Question is How do I reclaim space form this pool ? I usually add few volumes when it fills up but it is filling up at a faster rate recently due to addition of some new nodes .

    I know how tape reclamation works but I am new to just disk storage an I don't want to ask for space every few months .

    File pool reclamation works identical to tape reclamation.

    It may affect the performance of client backups. Typically you don't run housekeeping at the same time as client backups.

    If you halt the server, it will stop any running process including reclamation if it's running.

    You typically run reclamation right after expiration because it's expiration that makes the empty space in the volumes as data expires.
