Clean orphan files from disk
Hi all, how I can delete or clean physical files from the uploaded path since the disk storage always full.
The normal way is to delete the FileDocument object from Mendix, and Mendix will remove the corresponding files from disc.
There are however scenarios where orphaned files can occur:
- when you remove an entity (NB: entity, not object) from the domain model that inherits from FileDocument
- if you restore a backup without cleaning the files folder first
- In older Mendix versions there was a bug leading to orphaned files
There are several thereads on this that may be interesting for you to read:
