Looking for a better way to manage old archives. We try to keep about a year in our archive folder, when we run into disk space issues we delete the oldest archives. A few things i struggle with:
-I have to scroll to the very end of the list, delete them one by one…this worked well in 3.1 but takes alot of time
-I have noticed old archives get recreated…I have no idea how or why, but when I start looking for the older archives I find some that are still a year old, in come cases ‘created’ ‘a year ago’, but I have also seen old ones created recently
-The biggest problem and the reason I decided to post this, since upgrading to 4.2 a couple of weeks ago the archive screen appears to have issues properly displaying the table. I scroll to the last page, delete the oldest archive, then it somehow refreshes the screen to show me the most current ones, if I set it to display more than the default 20, it seems to struggle to load the table (very jittery) …then i have no idea what order it’s in…sometimes I can click back to the first page and then back to the last page, sometimes that doesn’t work. It’s just very frustrating and makes archive management a pain…
-Is there a better way to delete old archives instead of using the GUI?
