I have a large partitioned DDB which has been writing to a Cloud-based library, and has been for some time. The DDB partitions are roughly 2 TB’s in size.
As is recommended when you have been writing to Cloud libraries, it should at some point be sealed, and I would like to go ahead. We are also on the cusp of the maximum threshold for Q&I times.
However, I need to make sure I have enough space for my DDB on the current volumes.
So the question is, what happens to the old DDB?
I am assuming that it will remain at 2 TB’s in size until there is a corresponding reference for the blocks in the new DDB, or the blocks eventually age and are therefore not required. Maybe that will take months. Quite probably. Whilst it ages out old blocks, will the old DDB reduce in size?
But what can I expect from the new DDB?
If I only have a 3 TB volume, and 2TB is taken up by the old DDB then I really only have 1 TB available.
if anyone has recently been through this scenario, it would be good to hear from you.
