Cleaning up contents of artifacts/_old directory

I just had a disk space boo boo on our build server.

Despite cleanup policy being pretty tight on this build server, I've got a 140Gb directory under artifacts/_old

What is this for and can I delete a chunk of it?

It appears to have artifact drops in it that have been cleaned up. I thought these were removed from the system entirely?

Hi,

Such folder artifacts/_old is not created by TeamCity. So I suppose you can safely delete it.

I'm sure it is because there's no configuration that we've done and the folders are being appended to.

Please point out which version of TeamCity do you use?

Cris,

This directory was created when you upgraded TeamCity to 8.0+ version

It contains artifacts that were not used by build server at the moment of the upgrade. The only reason not to delete them during upgrade is a tiny possibility that they are used directly (via filesystem) by some other tools

Deleting this directory is safe and will not affect TeamCity server.
