Hope that is OK with you guys

freedom got rebooted in the last 4 year exactly 2 times :)
once before docker and and the other time with bernie as we upgraded to
docker ;)
-> a really stable system :D

so compared to justice which gets rebooted every 3 months where we know it
will just go fine, with rebooting freedom I am a little bit ... you know
... uneasy/protective ;)

right now ~50% of all the space is used for backups
so please give me some air here ... ;)

my advise for fast relieve of the backup problem:
is to fill the 2 empty slots on justice with two big drives ...
