Are event post attachments vulnerable?

This is strictly about PM attachments.  Normal post attachments are not affected.

In parallel, I'm checking what it costs to upgrade servers to one with more disk storage.

-Allen
Can you look at all PM attachments without having to access member accounts one at a time? I presume yes.

Nope.  And that's the way it should be.  Privacy.

-Allen
Sounds like a lot of work for you unless you are only looking at physical size of attachements without viewing.

I have the ability to easily delete based on age, which is why the original post said I'd start with deleting anything older than 1 year.  I mean, if you have an important attachment that is older than a year, why are you keeping it in your PM folder.

True, as well as why do I keep all my PMs since I joined.

To be clear, I will not delete PM's.  It's the attachments that are causing me problems.  I wish there was an easy way for users to list what PM's they have that have attachments.  I'm going to search for a method.

I am not deleting PM's, but it would be the attachments to PM.  Click on those and they should download to your computer.
