Don't know; have enough space that I don't need to auto-delete.

Personal choice.  I use NFS because my masterbackend has all the
drives; my slaves are diskless backends / frontends.

Lots, most likely.  Certainly on the order of the number of units
you'd find in a typical home.  Depends on the bitrate of the content.
