Over 30Gb HDD usage by Bitwarden on-premise install


I just wanted to try bitwarden at home and the installation worked without a problem, but something doesn’t look right. A simply install without any password added has over 30GB on the hard disk.

32G .

The containers are running fine and there is no other containers on the system:

what did I do wrong? Thx for the help.

I was able to find the problem. I needed to load


in /etc/modules-load.d/modules.conf and checking within my lxc containter that overlay support is there before installing bitwarden.
