Trashcan Cleaner has nothing to see with contentstore.deleted folder. Probably this can help to understand removing process https://github.com/keensoft/alfresco-deleted-content-store-cleaner/blob/master/README.md

I recommend you to activate alfresco trashcan module if you have an Alfresco 5.2 or greater or install amp Alfresco Trashcan Cleaner if you use another version.

Alfresco Trashcan Cleaner was added into Alfresco core since version 5.2 and you can enable it through alfresco-global.properties.

This module executes a job which delete nodes from alfresco trashcan.

I had a conceptual error about this subject, thank you Angel . I'll leave my post in case any forum member has the same misconception as me.

You can also have a Window/Linux (window task schedule) schedule job to run once in a month to delete the contentstorre.deleted folder.

Thanks

I use a cron job to cleanup contentstore deleted - as you mention ssh, I think you are using Linux too.
First I create a file in contentstore deleted  .... stands for the path to contentstore.deleted

touch ....contentstore.deleted/lastrun        

(for my monitoring system and to prevent me from accidently deleting contentstore.deleted)

then delete all the files older than 8 days (for safety, it could be possible to have to restore from a backup)

find ....contentstore.deleted -type f -mtime +8 -delete

then delete all empty dirs there

find ...contentstore.deleted -type d -empty -delete
