How to safely delete files to increase disk space
Merchants can delete files from the application's mount points and through
/mnt/shared. They are two different ways to access the same files.
Never modify or delete the contents of
/data/exports. The files there should be accessed only through your application’s mount points, so from your
/app path or through
/data/exports is the underlying storage behind the shared filesystem, and it is managed by GlusterFS. The filesystem there contains not only the file contents, but metadata about the state of the filesystem to allow for synchronization between the nodes of your cluster. Changing or deleting files directly within this filesystem will corrupt the shared filesystem, requiring extensive repairs or data recovery.
