Is Cleaning Up Orphaned Uploaded Files Necessary?
With the 'Advanced Editor' it's quite easy for users to upload images and files to their hearts' content. But I've found that even after a short time after setting the forum up, my handful of users have already uploaded several files that are not being used anywhere. It seems they sometimes upload the wrong image/file, and once they see it in their post, they realise they don't need it, and delete it. But deleting it from the post doesn't actually delete the file from the server - it's still there, in the 'editor' sub-directory...
As I'm new to Vanilla, I'm not sure whether this is something I should be concerned about. Do I need to do anything to clean up these old uploaded, orphaned files, that are not being used anywhere? Is there a task that Vanilla automatically runs periodically in the background that already does this? Do I need to install a plugin?
Any guidance would be appreciated!
