Clean up attachmentdata table after attachment storage migration to filesystem

Hi guys,

Does anyone know the official way to clean the attachmentdata table in the database after all your attachment has been migrated to the filesystem?

It seems like Confluence just leave the attachmentdata table untouched.

Why keep the old attachments on the database if Confluence will now use the filesystem?

I'm running Confluence 4.3.7, MSSQL 2008 R2, MS Server 2008R2.

 

Thanks

The clearing of the database tables for attachments canto fail even after the attachments have been migrated to the filesystem. If you are confident, you can clear the table yourself.

Yea I thought about it. Too bad that Atlassian doesn't have anything official on their side...
