Uploads original folder


(M Zain Damlag) #1

Hello All

I have too many users in my forum but not all are active, I have around 11K user which have avatar with around 500MB.

Is it possible to keep the optimized copies only with is 10% of this total size?

Good question, @zogstrip can you advise?

While you could purge optimized images, they would have to be generated on demand and this could easily turn into a self-DDoS… :expressionless:

I think @MZainDamlag is asking for the reverse:

@codinghorror @zogstrip Any updates ?

While you could delete the original avatars stored on disk, it would prevent you from being able to generate new thumbnails (we generate lots of different sizes depending on your pixel ratios).
