joplin 1.0.233 portable
so ive tried using the web clipper on chrome and download some random page. note looks good. i deleted it and synced again
i have like 4 notes and the sync folder is full of files (i guess that’s normal… with note revisions etc), but the images from the note i deleted are still in .resource folder using up space
am i doing something wrong?
Short answer because I’m on my phone, Joplin only performs cleanup occasionally to prevent lost resources. This sometimes doesn’t work perfectly, but for the most part you just need to wait and they’ll be cleaned up.
Feel free to search the forum’s for more detailed information, this question comes up a lot so you shouldn’t have much trouble finding lots of info.
I’ve tried search with delete/deletion/trash and found nothing.
Also tried the faq.
If the question comes out a lot maybe it should be in the faq.
Care to link me some detailed information? Thank you
Below are some useful threads (and a github issue) that I found searching the forums.
Just FYI I found these by searching the term "deleting notes", below is the first thread to come up and I clicked through it to get the rest.
Hope you’re able to point me in the right direction on how to achieve this!
Note A is created with attached images X
Note B is created with attached images Y
Note A is deleted
Note B is deleted
Note C is created with attach image Z
How do we bulk delete the all images from deleted notes (i.e. delete images X, Y but NOT images Z) under JoplinProfile\resources gracefully from the app frontend?
I’m aware Tools -> Note Attachments is possible, however this…
In general, are images deleted if I delete their links from a note?
While browsing my resources folder, I noticed hundreds of photos that no longer are related to a note. Deleting them through the attachments view is tedious as I can only delete one at a time, and then must scroll through the list again to locate the next deletion.
Could I simply delete these from the resources table folder without causing harms to the database? That would be much simpler as I can quickly see the problem files and delete in bulk.
Again, what harm, if any, would I cause by dire…

### Operating system
Please note that these scripts will become obsolete in the future, when the resource bugs are fixed!
A word of caution: I use the scripts myself and haven’t experienced any issues. However, use them at your own risk! It’s always a good idea to create a backup first. There’s also the --dry-run or -n option to see what happens without actually doing anything.
Use at your own risk!
Why are there 2 scripts to remove resources?
The first script jnrmor removes orphaned resources from the database a…
Yeah I found the first one. Doesn't really offer any solution and it's a 1 year old post. Besides scripts and messing with the database, no clear/easy solution.
From what I read, deleted resources get cleaned up 24h later and it's a bug that happens sometimes which prevents this from happening. Right?
I guess all a noob like me can do is wait for an official fix lol
