Subject [greenstone-users] Disk space

I've been using Greenstone with a very small (27 GB) test collection and
now I have to build the final collection that consists of 40200+ images
(about 85 GB). Since the first attempt to build ended with a disk space
error, I then added a second disk to my computer and mounted the
partitions as import and archives, also disabling the cache so the
cached dir wouldn't fill up. This time all the files got processed but
the build ended the same with a disk space error. After searching my
drive I found that there was now a building and index directory: the
first with 62GB of data and the second with 27GB of data. Since I've
found that to process the files and start the building of the collection
takes a little more than 2 days (at least using gli), I was wondering
exactly what do I need to put on external disks to keep my drive from
running out of space? Why is it making so many copies of my data in
different places?
