My media_attachments folder is over 200GB. What's going on here? Are there dangling files out there that aren't referenced in the database? Is there a tootctl command to go through and delete anything in media_attachments which is not references somewhere?

how much personal e-mail did you get back in the 2000? Sometimes we'd get 10 or 20 a day. Today, I probably get one to two personal e-mails a month. E-mail has turned into a mailing-list/notification pit.
