Running 10.8.0 on an ubuntu vm with mariadb on an xcp-ng hypervisor.
I’ve ended up in a situation where, for various reasons, I have a load of files (~500gb of them) that I was unable to delete either via the web interface or via the command line so to stop my server from running out of space I finally took the slightly drastic action of manually deleting the files from the filesystem. Not ideal but I needed to do something.
I’m now trying to clear things up and wondered if someone could give some guidance on which of the “occ files:xxx” commands is going to be my friend here. I have read the command line help but that hasn’t really helped me much (it says what they do but I can’t work out which of those I want).
I don’t think I need :check-cache (in fact, I think I need the opposite)
I also don’t think I need :checksums:verify as the files are not there to get the checksum from
I ran :cleanup and that said there were “0 orphaned file cache entries deleted”
I’ve run :scan for all users except the one in question (to see how long it took) and it’s currently running for the user in question.
Is there anything else I should be trying to remove stale entries from the DB that are no longer on the file system?
As a slight aside, I seem to be getting around 250 items per second, not sure how that sounds for storage on SATA3 spinning rust? Anyone have any comparisons?
