Repository removed, blob store size stays the same


I removed a repository. I ran the tasks Cleanup repositories then Compact blob stores. But it seems the blob store (that the repository was on) still has the same blob count and byte size.

Is there something I can do to verify that all blobs are associated to an actual repository?

When you delete a repository there is an asynchronous background task that needs to mark the contents as deleted. If you ran Compact Blobstore prior to this completing (or starting) some of the content may not be marked as deleted.

Well, one day later, running the compact task again, nothing has changed. Where can I see whether this background task has started or has completed?
