Hi Steve,

sorry for the late feedback. After some time on mobile only, I managed 
to check the image again. While disk/cd_type now correctly says 
'bluray', the ISO image is way too big again (21GB), maybe caused by 
removing COMPLETE=0 from cronjob.weekly?

As far as I understand, disk/cd_type is written by tools/start_new_disc; 
so would it be possible to add another if statement for USB?
