Files under deleted-documents

This morning I was searching certain files in the server and come across huge number of files “deleted-documents” under xWiki data/store/ folder. Is it possible to delete these files?

XWiki Jetty HSQLDB 11.9 CentOS 7.x

Short answer: no
Better answer: for a description of what’s inside the permanent directory

I guess you meant folders since there is no such file.

As the name suggest this is where deleted documents are stored. If you want to remove deleted pages you can do it from the document index in the UI. If you directly delete those folder you will end up with “broken” deleted documents references in the DB.

Doc for the permanent directory has now been updated and moved to

Appreciate your response. Will check this shortly.
