Disk usage >0 with no cards?

I created a new deck (25k items, ~20MB disk space), synced it to ankiweb, then deleted it. After deleting the usage didn’t go down. I re-created the deck, uploaded it again, deleted again and the usage went even higher.

Now syncing my phone with empty ankiweb I’m getting a message that I’m downloading 80MB of data (unexpected) but no decks show on the phone (expected).

Is this a bug or is there some hidden feature / trash that I need to empty?


On AnkiMobile or Ankidroid

You would need to click on the 3 vertical dots (Ankidroid) or the cog symbol (AnkiMobile) on top right

Check Database will shrink the collection down after content has been deleted, and you can force upload that to AnkiWeb if you wish.
