Files in alf_data/contentstore are not deleted

Jump to solution

Hi,

I just clean up my system to delete whole files (3 years old collections of documents) from the front-end manually

Then also delete it from the trash bin.

But when I checked into alf_data/contentstore, those files are still there and occupy disk space.

alfresco@dmsdev:/opt/alfresco-community/alf_data$ du -h --max-depth=1 contentstore/
12G     contentstore/2017
31M     contentstore/2016
14G     contentstore/2018
25G     contentstore/‍‍‍‍‍

My questions:

1. How to ensure that those files are safe to delete?

2. How to check between list on database and file system, so if we are not found files in db, then we are safe to delete on file system.

Thank you,

[bayu]

Hi:

Once deleted from trahscan, after a period of 14 days by default, content will be moved to contentstore.deleted (and then you can delete them from disk safely). In 30 days, node references will be purged from database.

Thank you Cesar Capillas‌, I didn't know about 14 days contents will be moved to contentstore.deleted.
