Non-existent shards on drive - delete?


(Kyle Lahnakoski) #1

I have manually commanded Elasticsearch to move a shard to a new node. It went well, and the shard shows on the new node. Unfortunately, original node's hard drive still has a directory for that shard. I am running out of space! Can I delete the directory for the shards that Elasticsearch does not think are on that node? I am using 1.7.1.

Thanks!
