Re: CLOSED: Previously deleted files in metastore and metastore_backup

Re: Greyhole Trash Has Files I did not Delete

Yes that is correct for how you created the share. Are you using the Greyhole UI ? Just curious. I am using the Greyhole UI. Works great! 1 - Did you update the files, i.e. copy over new files with the same name? How many copies do you have set for the share? Based on the number of copies, a balanc...
