Given a URL to an image on my lemmy instance, how can I (as an admin) permanently delete the image (and all cache/variants of the image)?
I operate a lemmy instance server. One of our users just submitted a GDPR Data Erasure request for an image. The image is orphaned, so it is not tied to any post or comment. We have a URL to the image only.
Images in lemmy are handled by the pict-rs service, which is itself distinct from lemmy. As stated in the lemmy documentation, there is a way to purge posts and comments, but there appears to be no way to purge a given image in lemmy through the WUI or lemmy API.
How can I entirely purge the image from my lemmy instance, given only the URL to the image?
