I've got RBS configured - and apparently working - in my dev farm, but have a question about how it handles file deletion. If I check the overall size of my blobstore folder (let's say 'C:\Blobstore') both before and after uploading a file over the specified size (100KB), I can see the size of the folder increase. However, if I do the same thing before and after deleting a file, I see no change in size for the blobstore folder. I confirmed the following:
- RBS appears to be working correctly
- File did not exist before RBS - it was uploaded afterwards and added to blobstore size
- Both Recycle Bins are disabled for the web application
Under these conditions, shouldn't the blobstore folder decrease by the same (or a similar) amount as the deleted file?
