Files not being deleted - Self hosted

We are running a self-hosted instance of Canvas and its up-to date to the latest stable branch. Whenever I delete a file within Canvas, it is removed from the course but remains on the server. Is this standard functionality or should the file be completely deleted? Is there a job that Canvas can run to remove these files. 

Any help with this would be really appreciated. I'm worried that we'll be forever increasing our storage if unwanted files aren't deleted.

Many thanks!

Hi David,

You may find more success asking your question in the IRC chat, where there are more developers who run self-hosted instances than the community forums. #canvas-lms
