Drop Old Asset Versions

Last Updated: Sep 19, 2023
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. (Note: dotCMS does now periodically delete old non-active Elasticsearch indexes.)

The Drop Old Asset Versions operation allows you to delete all assets older than a certain date. This operation will never delete any live or working content, no matter its age.

This operation is located under System → Maintenance → Tools.

Clean options are also available for the server File System.
