sorry if I missed this, but I couldn’t find answers to some questions I have regarding the resource management / temporary folder.
We developed an application using Flow (4.1 specifically) which allows users to upload images. Now we noticed that the temporary folder got pretty big and is not “cleaned up” when we flush the cache.
While the “Persistent” folder uses only about 4 GB of space, the Temporary folder currently contains 17 GB of data - 13.5 GB in the subfolder “ResourceFiles” and 3.5 GB of “ResourceUpload.tmp”-files in the main Production folder.
So here are my questions:
- what is the “ResourceFiles” folder for and would it be useful to clean it up from time to time?
- is it correct to have so many ResourceUpload files? We check the files after upload and sometimes do not want to keep them - do we need to clean them up or something to get rid of the tmp files?
- to be on the safe side: the name “temporary” surely suggests so, but would it be safe to delete the whole “temporary” folder of a Flow installation without any harm?
