# Remove unused images via Scheduler¶

## Introduction¶

If you want to remove unused, uploaded files from the server, you can use a scheduler task (Command Controller) for this. Define a folder, where powermail should search for unused files. All file which have no relation to a Mail record and is older than 1h will be removed. Note: This is irreversible - Please take care of a backup

## Console example¶

You can call a scheduler task directly from the console (if the backend user _cli_lowlevel exists) - see this example (called from webroot):
