Thanks to both. 


" you can manage (download, delete) the backup files from the restore page:"


that's what i've done.

some times the teachers want to backup on demand for various reasons.  I will give some thought to your suggestion.


So, there are no real file management tools outside of the file picker and the backup/restore pages?

No, not file management as we'd think of it.

I posted here yesterday: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=261049&parent=1154768

On a thread asking "What reports would you like" https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=261049

As a stopgap it would be good if there was at least some decent reporting.  If you can find that teacher X has backed up all her courses several times  . . .  that's valuable information.

Private files is another space issue.  I'd like to know if there are previous students still with large private files . . .

Tracker items: 

  1. Josephs bulk delete request: https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-33671
  2. Request for files size/course size reports: https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-46581

I have seen posts here where the conclusion to this debate is "Disk space is cheap anyway"

Good luck

-Derek
