  • 2nd import in progress, but attachment of 1st import still there..

    Hello I was preparing my forum to the 2nd definitive import.
    I have done the maintenance to update counters and posts.
    After that I also deleted the imported forums so now I do not see the numerous attachments that were inside them.
    I see from the cpanel that my Attachments are only 15, and it reflects the true number of the images I see in my published temporary vbulletin.
    Anyhow, I saw from my hosting cpanel that my "files" directory is 250mb! I still have those old attachments there, they are not gone!
    What should I do now? I need free space and I fear if I do another import I will just double the problem!
    Should I delete the file directory manually? what should I do?

    Honestly I don't know what you did or what to recommend. Fill out a support ticket at:

    Please include a complete description of the problem and be sure to include the login info to your Admin CP, phpMyAdmin and FTP in the 'Sensitive Data' field.
