Tons of folders in /uploads
I don't know if this is a bug or what.
So I normally completely ignore the /uploads folder when doing upgrades of PP. I had a user complain that they got an error message so I had to take a look in the uploads/112234 folder to see what was going on.
Now I've got over 110,000 members (phpbb) and apparently the uploads folder contains folders for pretty much any user who has uploaded a picture. So I have hundreds if not thousands of seemingly empty folders.
1) Are these folders supposed to stay there even after a user has uploaded their photos?
2) If so, why would they stay there empty? They serve no purpose, as they can be recreated if the user uploads again.
3) Can I safely delete all the folders as I don't like looking at them all
4) Can the PP script be modified to delete the /uploads/userid folder once all uploads are successful?
