Hi Galaxy devs,

I've installed Galaxy in local and I see that in spite of the users remove
their histories using the "Delete history" option, the used space is not

As I understand reading the Galaxy documentation, after deleting the
history, the history is marked as "Deleted" but files are not removed.
After 60 days, Galaxy automatically remove them.

I suppose this should be the default behavior too for local installations.
but I did not configure anything about that and I need to confirm this is
true because the used space becomes bigger each day!

Is there any way to change this periodicity to less days?

Thank you and regards,
