Sync storage doesn't change after I delete files

I am a obsidian user with official sync service.

recently,I reach my vault size limit,so I want to delete some files on my vault to keep it under the limit.

but the vault storage doesn"t change after I delete files.

the vault size showen on my computer is way smaller than sync page show.

this is my vault storage shown on sync page,it is over 1000Mb

this is my vault storage shown on my driver it is 300MB

I suspect that the other storage is stored on the cloud,but I don’t know how to delete them.

Do you see a purge button in the sync settings page?

can you post a screenshot of your sync settings page? Settings->Sync

moved to bug reports

I don’t see the purge buttion anywhere

Please, Output here the result of the command show debug info.

Was there a “purge” button and you clicked on it at some point in the past?

I don’t remember.

thanks, we’ll look into it.

what is the supposedly correct sync panel looks like? can you provide me a screenshot?

I am double checking here. It’s possible nothing is wrong. You haven’t reached the limit yet. When you go past the limit a button “purge” should appear and you can click that.

I forgot 1GB equates to 1024MB,thank you
