We found recently that our Bamboo installation was reaching the limits of it's disk space.
I have build expiry running nightly (keep builds for 1 week, minimum of 6), and this seems to clear up a few GB when run, but however this extra space disappeared very quickly after a few builds had been run. In practice, build expiry was running nightly, and any space that had been recovered was lost again by the morning.
On further investigation I found that the D: bamboo-home xml-data build-dir directory was massive (~20GB) and it wasn't being reduced when build expiry ran. I copied this directory elsewhere, and confirmed that Bamboo was functioning correctly without it, and am planning on deleting these files.
Is it safe for me to be deleting the D: bamboo-home xml-data build-dir directory?
Is there some in-built job in Bamboo that can manage the size of this? Some cleanup tool?
Can you navigate to the miscellaneous tab of your job configurations and check the option Clean working directory after each build. This will clear the local copy of the repository available at<tt>D:\bamboo-home\xml-data\build-dir</tt> before each build. Please note that this may increase the time taken to run a build but will save space

It should be as simple as removing working directories older than N days, or keeping the last N working directories for a given plan.
On 31 May, a GDPR-related change went live in the Bitbucket Cloud API that resulted in users not being able to create or edit Bitbucket Cloud Linked repositories in Bamboo. This API update removed t...
