Hi, Question about the team edition.
I have up until this point been unable to find a way of cleaning up older message/file data on Mattermost team edition without having to re-deploy everything from scratch (destroying teams and channels and user information in the process).
Am I missing something here?
Of course, messages and file data uses disk space and as the life of the system increases the need for data storage also increases. Even if i provision enough space for 3 years today, at the end of 3 years my only two choices would be to either destroy everything and setup a new mattermost team edition instance or add more disk space.
Also, adding disk space in the linux environment isn’t exactly a piece of cake either. I’m not technical myself but based on conversations with sys engineers, it takes a significant amount of time.
Mattermost team edition’s low cost of deployment is definitely a huge thing and the idea of having to add disk space for eternity seems to be counter intuitive as well.
This is a massive problem for large teams that exchange a moderate amount of files.
Is there really no practical solution to this? Is my only choice right now to provision for 3 years and just add most disk space when needed.
This does not seem sustainable or practically to me, but maybe I am missing something.
Any guidance would be much appreciated.
