Is there a safe way to physically delete unwanted extensions? I’ve uninstalled, but that doesn’t seem to remove them from my hard drive. I need to free up some disk space.
There is a garbage collection command available which purges/deletes all inactive extensions:
Linux: ./knime -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.garbagecollector.application -nosplash -consolelog
Windows: knime.exe -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.garbagecollector.application -nosplash -consolelog
Both commands should be executed within the root of the KNIME Analytics Platform installation within a console application.
Update: I mentioned the wrong commands first. I edited my post and corrected them, see above.
How exactly is “inactive” defined?
Eclipse, the underlying platform, is updating extensions by installing the new version and keeping the old ones in parallel for being able to perform a rollback. All currently installed extensions and their dependencies are kept while all old versions and file remainders of uninstalled extensions are deleted.
