Hi Ricardo,

You might want to take a look at this[1] page in the wiki. The short
answer is there is no way to configure purging datasets in Galaxy
itself. It would be nice to do so. Galaxy does provide an external
script that can be easily put in a cron job to do this. The script is
cleanup_dataset.py and you want to take a look at option "-d".

Hope it helps,
Carlos
