Re: Purge files on NFS or S3?

Hi all

Thanks. No I was just curious if there was a way to identify what to remove
in the blobstore because I was surprised the size of my blobstore at this
point. I will check what's in there (maybe James is right it is mostly
resource files). I am currently using NFS. I can build a CF with S3 as my

Not sure if this is what you need, but you can manually sync + delete
files from a local filesystem (including NFS mount) to/from S3:

i'm pretty confident that when apps are deleted that their droplets are
deleted with them and that proper garbage collection occurs with that.

i'm unaware of any NFS file system to s3 blob migration. you would need
to update the CC_DB references too i'm pretty sure. i'm interested if you
find out more.

I just looked at our disk usage on NFS server. We have used like 200G
so far, and I wonder if there's a systematic way to purge files we don't

Similarly, if I were to replace NFS server with S3 instead, does the
existing process (if any) work with S3?
