XF 1.5 Unused attachments deleted after an hour?

    Hi folks,

    One of the more annoying and obscure features vB had which annoyed my users for a while until I could work it out was the deletion of unused attachments.

    This, in principal, is a great idea but it often takes longer than an hour (gasp!) to write a post. If this was the case then it would make the post but with a link to an invalid attachment. Due to frustration the user normally just left it like that....

    Des XF have the same thing and if so, where can I turn it off / set it to a longer period.

    XF has the same thing, though we mitigate the specific issue you mention.

    Unused attachments are deleted every hour, but only if they are over 24 hours old.

    I've got some slow typers on my forum but I suspect even they would concede that 24 + 1 hours is OK :)

    thanks Chris
