XF 1.5 Clean Up or Prune Attachments

#1
My internal data folder is 19 GB on socaltrailriders.org.

This size makes the site time consuming to move and more expensive to host.

Is there a good way to prune or clean up what is there in the internal data directory?

I converted from vB. I wonder if there are duplicated or useless files I am hosting.

The data and internal_data directories are specific to XF - they are unlikely to have any relevance to VB.

Anything you delete from those directories is going to affect your XF installation and result in missing images.

Moving hosts and yes it is more expensive...

I am thinking I could run a script and say resize all images over 1 MB down to 1 MB and see if that helps....always seems bad to remove member content.

The script would also need to update the database entries, as the size data is stored per attachment.
