Drop Old Asset Versions

Last Updated: Aug 9, 2021
documentation for the dotCMS Content Management System

dotCMS keeps old versions of assets and content. All of this data takes up space and in some cases might impact performance. dotCMS does now periodically delete old non-active Elastic Search indexes.

The “Drop Old Asset Versions” operation allows you to delete all assets older than a certain date. This operation doesn’t delete any live or working content. The Drop Old Asset Versions operation is located under System -> Maintenance -> Tools Drop Old Asset Versions

Clean options are also available for the server File System.
