    Yea... Kind of sucks.

    But I bet they looked and found there were some people with huge numbers of snapshops and several TB of data.

    For sure! :) I'll better use Delimeter storage solution on ZFS, which is starting from 7$ for 500GB :banghead:
    By the way, are affiliates links are allowed to post on forum?

    i should get the forum rules set heh as generally there isn't a rule right now but specific mention and notice that it is an affiliate link when posted would be ok so folks have a conscious choice.
