What we did, was outsourcing the largest files to other partitions, and then applying a link to them. But I don't know, how long this can go well :)
This is at least an temporary solution, maybe there's some more sophisticated possibility.

Well, that's what links imitate.
Hope that helped, and that there _is_ a better solution to this problem.
