Well, there is only 22G free on said partition, and you're using 62G,
which is well over 10% of the total size of it (and you use 44% of the
space of all d-i images combined). Yes, diskspace *is* relatively short,
not to mention gluck is quite heavily bogged down under the I/O load.
Also, you're violating the GPL here, those old images (do one year old
images really have use for anyone still?) are distributed without source
and without a written offer to provide it upon request.
