Is it safe to remove folders like 54460417-53346308 from the build-dir of a remote agent

Out remote agents are always running out of space.

I was periodically removing all folders in D:\bamboo-remote-agent\xml-data\build-dir more than 2 months old.  But then I noticed that some builds were now missing their logs and aritfacts.

It looks like I can safely remove folders like DP2NDBB-BDDC15-JOB1 as long as the URL http://imed-bamboo:8085/browse/DP2NDBB-BDDC15-JOB1 returns 404 - i.e. a most likely a build branch plan that has been deleted.

Please confirm that this is valid.

I also see that the folders of the form 54460417-53346308 were use by deployment plans.  Is it safe to remove these.  If we do, do we lose any information such as deployment logs?  We would like to retain deployment logs - particularly for SIT and PRODUCTION indefinitely.

Please confirm this too.

Yes, it is safe to remove them. It will have no consequences for the data shown by the server.

Thanks for the help.
