Migrating data will be problematic as there's lot of user cr*p and custom built web apps from generations of cowboy programmers, plus about 300 users and a couple of dozen virtual domains.
As I'm really only after a stable implementation of a USB external drive (for backup) am I better off trying an upgrade from 4.8 to 4.9?

I really do need to install 5.x at some point ... :P Yes, more space is used in the root filesystem for 5.x.
