Data storage: Where does all my data go?

Presented by Greg Bird

Moodle data storage can be mysterious.

File uploads, images, student submissions, logs and backup data (both manual and automatic) all add up... but where exactly is this data?

What happens if I accidentally upload a large file and then delete it. Does it really go away? (Spoiler - ‘no')

More importantly, what strategies can I use to reduce my overall data, in order to speed up Moodle and push down costs?
