    I have an RT-AC5300 with firmware version 384.15,
    I am trying to determine the best way to remove space wasters from NVRAM.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    I have this config.tgz file in jffs - I have no clue why it is there, but this is taking up a lot of space.

    The JFFS content is unrelated to nvram - two separate locations.

    1. NVRAM and /jffs are two different things.

    2. 787,856 bytes is not a "lot" of space IMHO.
