How to Manage Storage in Wipster

Utilize folder structures to bulk delete whenever a project is finished.

Storage counts can quickly inflate while your team works through their projects, and hitting your storage limit can cause unexpected interruptions to your workflow. To combat this, we recommend a few best practices:

Only keep Works-in-Progress in Wipster

It's in the name! W-I-P-ster is primarily a review and approval tool, and while we do provide some basic archiving functionality, long term storage isn't our game. Once an asset (or group of assets) has gotten that final approval, best practice is to remove it from our platform in order to clear up space for that next project, then store it in your cloud service of choice.

If you'd like to keep an archive of the feedback on any asset, you can download the comments via the downloads tab in the sidebar in the review tool. Those are available as both a pdf (if you want thumbnails of the frame in question) and csv.

Organize components of the same project into a sub folder

Sometimes you'll be working on an entire suite of assets for a stakeholder, and you'll want to keep them in Wipster until all of them are approved. Once they are, however, it can be a pain to find them all and delete them if you're not prepared ahead of time. That's why we recommend organizing your project folders in such a way that you can simply click 'select all' and use bulk actions to delete a large amount of assets at once. This makes it easier to stay on top of your storage count as you finish your projects (or clean up if you haven't stayed on top of things).

Remember to empty your trash folder

Any asset deleted from your project library will be held in the trash folder for 30 days before it is automatically deleted. This allows you to restore assets if they were deleted prematurely. However, the contents of your trash folder will still count against your total storage limit until they're permanently deleted. If you need to clear up more space immediately, you can empty the trash from your trash folder, located near the bottom of the side panel of your Project Library.
