The offsite pool would be a Copy Storage Pool, whose role is to maintain a
copy of the files in the Primary Storage Pool for as long as they exist.
The residual stuff in the retired offsite pool would reflect your elder
files - probably mostly Active files, as they stay "forever".  You can
verify what's there with the Query CONtent command on the copy storage pool
volumes, and that command with the COPied parameter on the parent primary
pool.  If the old stgpool represents data that is safetied in its new pool,
you can delete the volumes comprising it and then the stgpool.  If the
stgpool has other filespaces/nodes intermingled with it, you could change
the collocation value to suit, do Move Data to segregate, and then delete
