For every octopus release and deployment, octopus is creating multiple folders and files inside the octopus installation path (For us : C:\Octopus\Applications\Environment1\ <Multiple folders>. we understand that the octopus is placing the deployment packages under this location and doing release and deployment process.
These folders size is keep on increasing after every new release and deployments. In our case we are pushing 8 to 10 packages to octopus release for each releases, and we are performing parallel deployments on multiple environments. so that many folders are getting created in the specified location and octopus is keeping lot of files inside these folders. (Approximately, for us 5 GB of data is getting increased for each octopus release and deployments)
Because of this our server's directory (C:\ Drive) is getting full frequently. what is the best practice to handle this. Is there any feature or option in octopus to delete the old folders / files ? Or do we need to write some powershell script / program and schedule it to run on some particular day or date.
Thanks for considering this post
