attachments directory in Jira



there is something I need to understand about the hierarchy of attachments directory, normally the issues attachments exist under /attachments/key/10000/  but there are cases where the issues attachments directories exist directly under /attachments/key/ as shown below




and when I look into each one of them ( except for 10000 directory ), I find each directory is actually empty so when this case happens exactly ? as I need to find the projects that has no attachments 


@Alexey Matveev _Appfire_ I would like to hear your opinion too if you dont mind

Odd behavior. We have 26 projects, and none of them have attachments directly in the key directory; they're all in 10000, 20000, etc. subdirectories. Further, I find no empty directories; only issues with attachments have directories. Now, if there is an issue for which its attachments are deleted, its empty directory is left behind.

Stop looking at the directories, they're not intended to be used like this.

The only thing you  should be doing with the directories is backing them up.  They're not there for you to read outside the application.
