Remote media older than one week will now be removed every day from mstdn.io
@angristan what counts as "remote media"?
@angristan okay. That is what I figured. But I wasn't absolutely sure. "Trust but verify." Thanks. :)
@jansegers Only the images/GIfs/Videos are removed from the local cache, the toots are still here :)
Local medias are still there, it would be a bit hardcore to delete them
@angristan I was wondering... does it remove every file created (including thumbnails etc.) ? Clearly not a Ruby dev, but the task is pretty simple : https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/blob/master/lib/tasks/mastodon.rake#L48
@angristan Ok 'cause I tried it. On a 840MB public folder, it only removed 43MB. Maybe the rest are not media but profile pics etc.
@angristan RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake mastodon:media:remove_remote ?
@angristan Que je fasse pas de conneries :D
@angristan can you share the how-to ?
@angristan hey, are you are using the docker image on that?
@angristan what does that mean? What exactly is remote media?
@assbach when someone from another instance toots an image, we store a local copy of the image, and that's taking a lot of space
@angristan I see
