I am currently crunching wah2_eu25_j6hd_199612_12_010209245_0, I have set it's quota up to try and get it finished quickly, but it's disk usage is huge, over 18GB at the moment, I have less than 5GB left free on the disk, and other projects, (Cosmology and POEM at the moment), are giving messages saying they cannot download work for lack of space. I have, obviously, set no new tasks.

Check in projects/climatepredition.net and see if you have any folders from tasks that have crashed, if so these can be deleted. Not sure but 18GB for one task seems a lot to me even given that I have read these are bigger than usual. Because I run Linux, I haven't had any of these tasks to check it out for myself.

Job is still running but has dropped to 2.50GB now. I'll keep an eye on it. I don't recall having a CPDN wu crash actually.

CPDN does have a habit of accumulating old files etc. I have found the easiest way to clean up is to set no new tasks and when all tasks are finished and reported to remove CPND from BOINC then add it again as a new project.

Yes, it certainly does. I spent a while deleting old stuff, application versions etc. which has released some space. Now CAS@Home is also looking like a clean up is needed.
