Disk Cleanup

I've noticed that Incorta does not delete the parquet/compacted files after you remove a schema (or a table within a schema). Is it ok to manually delete the parquet/compacted files that are no longer needed? 

Also, is there a script or something that can identify which parquet/compacted files are associated with tables or schemas that have been deleted?

Can this behavior be changed inside Incorta settings such that it will remove the underlying files on disk when a table or schema is deleted?

  • Anyone? I've got several very large files in my parquet/compacted folders for schemas and/or tables that have been deleted from Incorta. I'd like to clean them up, but need to make sure that won't cause any problems with Incorta. I'd also prefer to have Incorta do this cleanup automatically, if possible.

  • Actually, Incorta currently assumes that you will clean up the disk manually since otherwise, you may lost your data if you accidentally delete the schema.

  • In that case, is there any documentation on which files on disk are safe to delete? I'm concerned about manually deleting any files that might affect the normal operation of Incorta.
