OK, so now we understand where your disk space is going.  The amount of
gridded data included in the IDD has been steadily growing (and
promises to continue doing so).

Yes, very much so.

The question is what grids are you willing to _not_ decode?  As soon as
that is answered, I can logon and turn off decoding of those puppies.

For instance, I am willing to bet that you do not need the NGM, MRF or
ECMWF grids.  The unfortunate truth is that the big growth has been in
the others: ETA, AVN, and MRF.
