Hi! Could anybody please recommend the volume of free disk space required to import the latest planet PBF via osm2pgsql?

E.g., one of crucially important characteristics is the resulting size of the directory


after the whole loading in the slim mode with flat-nodes with hstore. What size did you get in this mode?

For the whole Europe (19.1 GB in PBF) PostgreSQL 10 database takes about 450 GB, so I assume it would be about 1 TB for the whole planet (43 GB in PBF).
