Hello OMERO team,
We are hosting OMERO on a cloud server with 5TB of space. We have encountered the issue of running out of storage space as a result of importing a large dataset a few weeks ago. The dataset was imported in-place so as to minimize duplication and conserve resources, but it appears that a large chunk of it is being stored in a cache or that temp file generation is using a lot of space.
After digging around a bit, it looks like the folder
omero/data/BioFormatsCache is using a lot of storage. Is this where images are cached (or general temp files are stored)? If so, can I clear its contents to free up space?
Lastly, is there a way to limit the size of the cache to prevent this issue in the future?
Many thanks in advance,
