Artifacts from deleted branches are removed. I've noticed that branches we delete in Git still show up in TeamCity, but after an period of time (seems to be around a week) their artifacts are automatically removed by TeamCity. We have some branches that have some artifacts from newer builds but no artifacts from older builds. I know we used to have artifacts from all of them. Our cleanup settings have remained the same. I expect to have 10 artifacts remain on the branch even after it has been deleted from source control for a long time.
TeamCity Professional 8.1.5 (build 30240)
Artifacts older than the 10th successful build; artifact patterns: +:**/*
Other items are kept forever
Do not prevent dependency artifacts cleanup
Any help would be appreciated. I have scoured the docs/forms/bug reports and see no mention of this problem.
