This pages explains how the media-module deletes media files from Shopware.
Asset contains a value for the
deletedAt timestamp the corresponding media file will be removed from Shopware.
deleteShopwareOnlyFiles of any subsection determines if images are removed from Shopware if no corresponding asset is
present in the transfer database. This removes manually added files from Shopware, so use this feature with caution.
Remove Empty Media
The module is able to remove media-entities that do not contain a media file. They can occur due to errors in the file uploading process, third party plugins or manual misconfigurations in the administration panel.
If you activate the configuration option
subsections.removeEmptyMedia.enabled the module will clean up empty media entities before
handling any assets and media operations.
