Resources cleanup (images)

I am new to Joplin and would like to have a clear explaination on how the cleanup process works.
I mean I've read in several posts that Joplin does a resources cleanup every 10 days (or 2 days in older post).
I am running a Portable version of Joplin (version 1.7.11 for Windows) and have made some tests:

  • Creating a Note on 19/2
  • Adding screenshot in the note
  • removing the screenshot in the note
  • And as of today 1st of March, the resources associated to the screenshots are still in the ~resources folder

Maybe I don't understand correctly the cleanup process or is it because of Portable edition?

Thank you for your help

What are your note history settings?

Hello Jack,
Thanks for the Hint.
My History settigns is 90 days.
So, if I understand well, the resources won't be deleted since there might be a note (in the history) which would need the resources?

Correct. Only after 90 days
