We have migrated our data to a new system - by adding the new devices and progressively changing the weight till the old devices are all at zero and the new ones at the correct size.

Have have 4Tb of data on the new system - but there is a few hundred Mb on the old devices (as seen by doing a "df").

Most of this data is "quarantined" - what should I do with it? Is there a method I can examine the files and see where they should be and what they contain - that way I could re-upload the data.

I don't want to decommission the old devices with the data on - without being sure that correct versions of the data are in place.

check the quarantined data (although it may be unreadable) with swift-object-info. then do a HEAD on the cluster for that object to see if it's good (it's extremely likely that it is). then delete the quarantined data with no worries.
