@monty are you about at the moment?

Will try to UP this topic again… more than 20 days are gone and no any comment from Storj Labs…


Did the massive GC for stefan-benten clean up any of this data on your GE node?

I see only one node is clean, but the rest still has the same size of garbage in blobs (not inside trash)

Attaching screen, as you can see, nothing changed (the same node like on initial post):

I wonder if this has anything to do with my node actually having significantly more data than the SN reports.

On one node I got 48MB left in stefan benten blobs after GE (finished in april). Also 0.5MB in trash.
On the 2nd node I got 52GB left in stefan benten blobs after GE (finished in april)! Also 1MB in trash.

we are working on it, what issue will be fixed soon, thanks for understanding


Thanks a lot for your feedback and confirmation that fix in progress!
It is very important to keep in touch, a few words much better than silence.

I have one open question: who will pay for this garbage after GE?
It persists on my nodes for more than one month after GE.

just my opinion but I’m guessing this garbage is now abandoned and will not be paid for.

I think this is correct. But i’m concerned not just with general garbage but like left over files after GE and such (is that considered garbage?)

I agree with you, but I asking himself, why I should keep this garbage so long time after my storage node relations are ended with this satellite?
Anyone from Storj Labs is not confirmed that I can just delete this folder and will be free of this garbage :slight_smile:

I’m sure it’s no use keeping it around, but that really shouldn’t be up to you to clean that up. Even GC is a bit weird at the point after GE. I see no reason why after a successful GE the node would not immediately clean up all remaining data from that satellite. And yeah, I think that should also mean that after the node is updated with a fix for this, it should clean up all data that was left behind for previous GE’s. I don’t know how much data it is on your node. But I would kind of just let it stick around just for the principle of it and to see if they properly fix it with an update. Of course if your nodes are full you may not want to wait for that.

Fix with deleting all satellite’s files left after successful GE already merged, so please wait for release with it :slight_smile:


That is great news, happy to hear that!
