Blob usage ~140GB


I’m wondering that my local (only for me) nexus instance is using 140GB on drive.

I run today cleanup tasks set with


for docker and maven task. I expeced, that nexus will reduce the usage. But after the run, the usage was the same.

My tasks:

How can I see what is on the blob and why so much? I’m using it not so often.

Today I updated to nexus-3.47.1-01.


Hi Rafał,
The cleanup policy, same as user operation in UI or via API, mark assets as soft deleted. To hard delete them you have to run Admin - Compact blob store task on your blob stores to and reclaim your disk space. Here’s a link to our documentation if you’d like to learn more: Cleanup Policies
