    howto delete attachment old photos

    I have never been able to delete old attachment photos. Everytime I upload I notice that it says they will be automatically deleted after so long there and not accessed. I have stuff that is, literally, years old still up there chewing up forum space. I really don't care but thought I would mention it.

    Thread moved to Forum Feedback & Help as the more appropriate forum.

    The reason is that threads/posts are never deleted from the forums no matter how old. But if referenced attachments are deleted, then posts no longer make sense. Some threads are over a decade old and still referenced as HowTos, FAQs, etc.
