[fixed] Versions of permanently deleted files are never deleted from storage

Updating a file stored on a datasource with versioning policy enabled creates new version-files on datasource ‘versions’ as expected. However, permanently deleting the file removes only the latest version-file leaving all the previous versions untracked and abandoned.



  1. Create 3 versions of a file
  2. Verify the version-files are created as well
  3. Check the actual storage
  4. Permanently delete the file
  5. Check whether version-files were deleted from the database
  6. Ensure the last version was transformed into a recovery-file
  7. Permanently delete the recovery-file
  8. Check the actual storage
