Hi @Ilhem,

That table contains all of the messages (also known as posts) sent by users of Mattermost, so I wouldn’t recommend deleting those.

Hi, @Ilhem

Out of curiosity, may I know what step did you take to cater to the growing size of the Posts table? Did you end up deleting individual row(s) / leave the table the way it is / increase the size?

Did you had any particular concerns when the table size grew? Just want to understand the scenario a little better. Thanks.
