Floating files after deleting filedocument specialization

4
When deleting an entity that inherits from administration.filedocument, the actual files remain in the deployment (\data\files\) directory. These floating files have an affect on the disk space needed. When deleting a filedocument from a microflow or page, the actual file is deleted . However, in this case I cannot do this because the inheriting entity is already deleted from the modeler earlier. The cleanup orphan file custum setting (com.mendix.core.localfilesystem.cleaning.isEnabled) is not the right setting to use. How can I get rid of these floating/orphan files?   edit: The setting com.mendix.core.localfilesystem.cleaning.isEnabled cannot be set, the error The requested custom setting is reserved by the internal system appears. There is also a warning in the release notes Warning: This is an experimental feature that will be replaced in the near future. This feature should not be used in production.

Seems to me like you're describing a bug in the platform.

I don't think there is any way to recover apart from Mendix providing a fix and specific funcitonality to clean this up.
