Hi all,

I want to change my backup strategy a bit. Please review:

Filesystem      Size   Used  Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/amrd0s1a   484M   219M   227M    49%    /
/dev/amrd0s1d   3.8G   2.7G   764M    78%    /backup
/dev/amrd0s1h   7.6G   5.7G   1.3G    81%    /home
/dev/amrd0s1g   992M   444M   469M    49%    /mail
/dev/amrd0s1e   4.7G   2.3G   2.0G    53%    /usr
/dev/amrd0s1f    14G   2.1G    11G    16%    /var
procfs          4.0K   4.0K     0B   100%    /proc

What I would like to do is:

downsize the /var part by 2.0 GB;
loose the /backup part alltogether;
add 1 GB to the /mail part;
add the remaining 4.8 GB to the /ome part.

Any ideas on strategy / directions for accomplishing this?
