There certainly is but I hadn't realized that, once the stuff
uploaded, there was any upkeep.

I had come to the very same conclusion.

I don't know the sizes yet but I would guess around 100Mb for the sum
total of the various possible downloads but I wouldn't expect anyone

you suggest somewhere where I could get acquainted with all that?
