My node chews through a lot of data, we never pin anything. The .ipfs directory keeps getting bigger, I started trying to run the gc at around 125GB and now it’s around 450, bumping up against my partition size so I’m running out of time. gc doesn’t seem to work, so is there a safe alternative way, like manually deleting the database that ideally doesn’t require restarting the ipfs daemon? If I have to I will, but would prefer to avoid it.
I would appreciate any specific steps people have taken for this problem, from the github issues it seems like this is a known problem.
