Required disk space for running geth and swarm.

Running geth, swarm, and ‘swarm up index.html’ in 3 separate cmd windows chews up disk space at an alarming rate.  It there a cap on the amount of disk space used by these processes to manage the node(s)?  I experiences about 20-30GB in less than 2 hours and suspended the processes.

    Jack – Thx.  I thought that might be the case.  I zapped the processes and reset my VM to expand disk space for future experimentation!
