  • Unused Attachments: Unfortunately Still There

    Hello,

    I got a peculiar problem. I've removed some images from my post, even removed those attachments from the post and yet those attachments still appear in the *File Upload Manager*.

    It says: *Uploads not utilized within one hour will be deleted*, yet it was several hours and it's still there.

    When I click on the ? icon, it says: *This asset is not currently being used by any content that you have access to.*

    So, shouldn't it simply get auto-deleted and not be visible in the manager box anymore?

    Regards,

    The URL in your licence doesn't point to a vBulletin forum...please could you update this as it is a requirement of the license for it to be correct.

    As a result of that I can't tell so will need to ask...what version of vBulletin are you running please? Anything prior to 4.2.3 did not actually delete unused attachments (even though it was meant to).

      Hello,

      apologies for that, the forum was moved into a different directory for an overall maintenance, once the maintenance finishes, it will be moved again and it'll match the license URL.

      Upon further investigation, I came across something called: *Scheduled Task Manager*, discovered that it has some scripts responsible for cleaning up the forums, etc.

      However, it was all set in past, e.g. year 2003. Then I realized, the forum was turned off and due to the maintenance, reinstall and all that, the traffic to the site was like 0, except of maybe 2 developers.

      Upon turning the forum back on, the script ran and cleaned those unused attachments.

      Regards,
