      Orphan Attachments   07/31/2018

      I have been doing some housekeeping lately and I've noticed that I had a lot of orphaned attachments. Attachments get orphaned when the PM or post is deleted without removing the attachment first. Deleting a PM or post does not delete the attachment and the file or image remain on the server. I'd like to ask all members to go through their attachments and delete any attachments you don't need anymore or those that have been orphaned. Where can I get a list of my attachments? Click on your display name in the upper right corner of the forums and pick "My Attachments" from the drop-down list. How can I tell an attachment is orphaned? If the PM has been deleted, you'll see a message like this in your attachment list: Unfortunately there is no message if the post has been deleted, so please check your old posts. We do purge old birthday threads every once in a while. Also some hosted projects have been shut down, so you may have orphaned attachments on one of those locations. Thanks!

    Hey CiB, welcome to TAL!
    Yeah, it's just a dummy file but I thought I'd try it anyway.
    That is weird. I've never heard of it CTD'ing that way. Ok, I'll poke Kyoma and see if he has any ideas. At one point he had put together a comprehensive debug build and we might need to pull that out.
    You might want to follow this thread so you get an email notification when a reply is posted. Otherwise I'd say to check back over the next couple of days.
