I an using Alfresco 4.2.c Community Edition, I was deleted a bunch of content via the web UI, but it is not freeing up disk space, I have looked at this article http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Content_Store_Configuration and changed the protect to 1 day. I even restarted alfresco and it's not moving the data.

I'm also not really clear on the life cycle of files in the system. If a file is deleted is it moved to contentstore.delted? Do I still have to manually purge contentstore.deleted folders?

If I upload 10 gigs of files via the WEB Ui and then later delete them all via Web interface. They disappear from the Web UI but I am not seeing any disk space come back.

I have a script running that logs the size if the O/S disk as well as the size of the contentstore and contentstore.deleted folders and they have changed size in 2 days.

Any thoughts?

Pat
