I have been testing an SSIS application that, amoung other things, stores report files as FILESTREAM data. I've got about 12,000 files in many folders under the default FS folder on my C drive and would like to get rid of them. I tried deleting all of the rows from a table then issuing a CHECKPOINT and also truncating a table and issuing a CHECKPOINT command but neither approach eliminated any of the blobs stored in the FS folder.

Im struggling with the same thing right now... any answers? Delete from table, does not delete physical file. Update of record creates an additional file........ and no clean up (as yet).

Also if you look at a record in a table, how to you link that record and the file stored??

Ok, found out about the garbage collector taking some time to complete the deletes, etc

Still looking for the "link" between the record and the physical file?
