Tons of old finished/replys files

Asked by Gergely Daróczi on 2013-01-26

I have been using this great uploader for a while and I am pretty happy with the experimental Chromium support, but one thing is really annoying: I have more then 80.000 files in the "finished" and "replys" folders. Of course these are really small text files, but making some unwanted overhead on my file system.

Is it safe to remove all e.g. once every week? Or should I keep those?

It is save to delete all files in the "failed" and "finished" subdirectories.

I'm planning of having the client verifying that they have been uploaded using RescueTime's data API and then delete them automatically, but there's no roadmap for this.

Awesome, thank you very much for the great news!
I will then delete the files from the "finished" folder. The manual way/cronjob for the latter is enough cool, no need for more eye candy :)

Could you please also let me know if it's OK to remove files from "replys" too?

Deleting from "replies" is ok, too.
