A month ago i tested the source only snapshot (S3 repo with ES 7.4.1). At the end i decided not to use it but now i have large _snapshot directories on my disk. They use about 25% of my disk space.
[root@es01 0]# du -skh * 19G index 6.1G _snapshot 12K _state 12K translog
I think they are temp directories for the source only snapshot? Are those directories automatically removed by elastic or can i remove them myself without breaking anything?
