I have a small server with only 20G of storage with my Discourse running on it. So I can’t let people upload too big files——of course if it is very important it should still be uploaded, but if not so important, it should not.
So I set the biggest upload file size 100M.
But I see many not so important files uploaded and the back-up quickly increases.
Here is a really small file I uploaded as an example:
try file.csv (6 字节)
with codes to be
<a class="attachment" href="//discourse-meta.s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/original/3X/f/8/f8c1d87006fbf7e5cc4b026c3138bc046883dc71.csv">try file.csv</a>
What if I just delete such codes. Will the file “try file.csv” really be deleted from the server and will not cause any more burden on Discourse Backup File?
