This table reports various information about your disks.
Of interest are /kbox and /kbackup.
/kbox is where all the software for the kbox server lives. It's also where we keep the
software packages you upload to the server.
If this starts getting close to full you should consider removing old unused packages
or contacting KACE for an upgrade.
/kbackup is the drive where /kbox is backed up to. It should generally be about as full
as the /kbox. Again if it is near full you should consider some cleanup actions.
The other mount points should not move very much in terms of usage.
