Snapshot deletion leaves behind empty directories

(Arunachala) #1


We are using ES 2.4.1.
On deletion of a snapshot, ES leaves behind empty directories under the 'indices' directory within the ES repository, which earlier used to hold the indices data for that snapshot. Is this a known issue? Is there anyway of forcing ES to delete these directories?

Note: We are using python ES APIs to delete the snapshot.

Hi, this is a known issue which is fixed in Elasticsearch 5.0, see
