regarding the local archive:

-the studio computer is a mac mini that is bolted to the bottom of the desk in the studio, out of sight.
-in addition the mac mini startup drive, there is a 2TB external USB drive connected called "KCHUNG3" (there are also a KCHUNG2 and a KCHUNG1 that have older files on them)
-while we have the complete archive stored in the cloud as mp3's (see the main entry about the KCHUNG archive the archive is not currently housed locally in its entirety in any one location. part of it is on the startup drive, part is on KCHUNG1 or KCHUNG2 drives (which luke has), and part of it is on the current external USB drive KCHUNG3.
-when the mac mini's hard drive gets full it is largely due to us saving the audacity project files. those take up significantly more space then the actual wav files or mp3s. we only save the audacity projects in case we discover an export error. delete all the audacity project files that are over a month old.

what to do and what not to do if the tower is running out of space:

-empty trash
-delete all audacity projects which are over 1 month old.
-move all wav and aiff files to the current external USB drive and delete the local copies.
-restart the studio computer.
