Versions retention is huge


I am running owncloud 9.1 and allow my users 50gb of storage. But when I check their actual size on my server their display are over 150gb. Their biggest folder is the versioning folder so it looks like owncloud is not deleting the old versions.

How can I make sure their home dirs don't exceed 50gb and do the it only keeps say the last 5 versions of a file instead of 100 versions as it's doing it now.

I currently do not have versions_retention_obligation line in my config.php.. Should I add it and what should I have it as?


Do your cronjobs run regularly? On your admin page you should be able to seen when it run for the last time. On your own server, you should run a real system cronjob and rather not use webcron or ajax (see documentation).
