I have a ~70gb Raptor drive dedicated to postgres and PT. It's pretty maxxed out. I did what I could
to clear up space. I'd like to format this drive clean and install postgres/PT3 on it. (I'd also like to kill off the absurdly, indescribably cluttered and massive "Moved" hand history folder I have currently residing on another drive. Seriously, this monster has four years of hundreds of random folders, thousands of files, datamines from multiple sources/softwares, files in every naming convention imaginable, old exports. It takes a minute just to pull it up in explorer. But I digress...)
Do you expect that PT3 will use more HD space per hand history, less, or the same?
Should I consider having PT3 be on a different drive, and having this drive dedicated to postgres?
When do you anticipate PT3 will be "prime time" enough for me to actually blow away my PT2/existing postgres installations?
With ostensibly improved PT3 performance, will I be able to keep everything in one database, or will it still be a good idea to have a separate database for observed hands?
Will purging observed hands older than X months, followed by a vacuum, fully recapture the appropriate amount of space?
