  1. I really like this idea of a linux crash course. Maybe as you’ve made recently videos about backups and memory management, you could make one for storage management. I’ve noticed that over time the storage available is less and less, even on relatively low activity going on, and is not so obvious to me where this is coming from. At first I though logs, or docker volumes as I have most services running on Docker, but that’s not the case at all :thinking:

    How to troubleshoot this situation would be an interesting video. Anyhow, thanks for the great content!
