I know how to fix these, I'm just wondering why they even happen in the first place.

Specifically in the past (like 3 years ago) a certain administrator would just manually go into the offiles and delete large attachments to free up space.

I "fixed" that issue years ago (beat them into submission--haha)

We run an expire/reduce every Sat that removes anything over 1 year.

So one would think the gwcheck would properly update all the records as it's going through and removing things.

But it seems it leaves the pointers hanging around?

Is this normal?

And if so, does this mean I need to modify the "standard" gwcheck jobs to do attachment checking now to keep this from happening?
