I have a Private IPFS Network and IPFS-CLuster.
I thought if I control all peers and just unpin some file by it’s CID from all peers than file will be deleted from the network. But I was wrong…
Using Cluster API :
- added file (
ipfs-cluster-ctl add file.txt)
- check it status and it was pinned among all nodes (
ipfs-cluster-ctl status CID)
- unpinned recently added file (
ipfs-cluster-ctl pin rm CID)
- checked that it was unpinned (
ipfs-cluster-ctl pin ls)
But I’m still able to get the file with
ipfs cat/get CID…
Even if I run garbage collector on all nodes
ipfs repo gc I’m still able to access this file.
Is it possible to completely delete file from my Private Network/Cluster?
