Subject Re: deleting old snapshots
Date Fri, 19 Oct 2018 17:19:35 GMT
Hi Mathew,

sorry resources are very limited. 
To help sort this out, please use version 2.2.3. 
There are some tickets in jira about purging. Have you checked, if the snapshots are still
in the filesystem? There is an issue about the index not updated for purged files.
Can you provide some logs?
