    Hey guys,

    I am running MBS to B2 and I have been seeing a large discrepancy between data reported to be stored and the actual data we are paying to be stored on B2. It turned out to be a very large amount of "Unfinished Large Files" and I was wondering if there was any way to automatically or just an easier way to clear out these files. Currently, the only way I have been able to delete these is to manually browse the B2 bucket and select each one and press delete. Considering how many of these I am seeing and how many servers I have running MBS that process would take a very long time. Just to quantify how much data we are paying for in these unfinished files, some of our buckets are being reported to be 8tb, whereas MBS reports 700gb used. The entirety of that discrepancy is due to these unfinished files, which is getting expensive!

    If anyone has found a way to deal with these, or some kind of solution and would like to share it I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

    There's a post on the Backblaze site about using their command-line tool to remove unfinished large files from an entire bucket (refer to end of post): https://help.backblaze.com/hc/en-us/articles/225556127-How-Can-I-Easily-Delete-All-Files-in-a-Bucket-

    In the interim, I will reach out to Support and see if anything can be done on our end to prevent this from happening in the first place.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply! I will look into that link, but if you do get any word about a feature in MBS do let me know!

    Hi,

    This is actually one of the known issues we're currently working on. The fix is expected to arrive in version 6.0. I've already added you to the list of clients to be notified when it is released.

    We gave up on B2 precisely for this reason. I find that Google Coldline is much faster and more reliable than B2 and is only $0.007 /GB/Mo. Data has to be kept for 90 days to avoid early deletion charges, but that is our standard retention period anyway.
