This week was another busy one. I have a lot of assignments due in December and also had a few other things going on. But one thing I wanted to talk about today, was a very stupid mistake I made earlier this week…
On WordPress, there is the Media Library. Essentially, this is where all the pictures you have ever used in a post are stored.
Now, since WordPress hosts my website, they can only allow me 3GB of space for my images. I tried to think of ways to cut down on how much space I have used already, and then I noticed the Media Library.
Whilst I now know that this is where all my images are kept and that they should my be deleted, I did not know that at the time. I had quite a lot of photos on there (too many to even count) and so I thought: Great! Deleting these will save me a heck of a lot of storage! So I bulk-deleted them all.
It wasn’t until I had a look back at some of my old posts that I noticed the problem, and realised that this has probably happened to all of my 933 posts.
Thankfully, I was able to get them all back in the end, but lesson learned!
