Hi @isabelcarvajal

/ opt / splunk / var / lib / splunk -- filesystem holds data for all indexes like _internal, _introspection,_audit, main.

in each of these indexes, the data again is arranged based on the age ----- Hot, warm, cold, thawed

db folder ----- hot &warm data
colddb ----- cold data
thaweddb ----- restore frozen data which can be searched.

Please go through these doc for more understanding.
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.1.1/Indexer/HowSplunkstoresindexes

& aging of the data can be explained in this doc.
