my harddisk slowly fills up, especially
must be lost of federated stuff. is there a way to cleanup these folers? its over 15GB actually and i would love to reduce it or hold it at some level. we do not need any federated old stuff nobody shared, fav, or otherwise used.
@kmj @Gargron I clean out previews using a simple find on the filesystem. Doesn't work so well for accounts data, since Mastodon doesn't automatically fetch missing avatars and header images for known accounts (though you can force an update using tootctl accounts refresh --all).
When using the local filesystem, media expiry tends to result in having tons of empty directories, and I regularly delete those too.
@kmj @Gargron There is "tootctl accounts cull" to delete accounts that are not known by remote instances anymore (only works when the instance is still online though), and "tootctl statuses remove" to expire old remote toots that are not referenced by any local activity.
Neither of both had any immediate impact on my database size, but it should also remove media associated with the deleted accounts and posts.
Mastodon ist ein soziales Netzwerk. Es basiert auf offenen Web-Protokollen und freier, quelloffener Software. Es ist dezentral (so wie E-Mail!).
